  • The Hope Bell - a symbol of hope, thanks and remembrance.

Views are being sought on the proposed creation of a new gateway feature at Queen’s Park in Loughborough.

Charnwood Borough Council has arranged consultation sessions with Vertigo Creative to inform the design of the gateway which is part of the Council’s Lanes, Links and Hope Bell Project.

People are being encouraged to take part in the sessions.

The Lanes, Links and Hope Bell project will see the creation of a memorial to remember all those in Charnwood who have lost their lives in the Covid-19 pandemic. The Hope Bell will also be a tribute to NHS and key workers, a beacon of hope for the future and a reminder of how communities came together to support each other in challenging times.

The project will also look to improve pedestrian access to the park from the Ward’s End and Devonshire Square area, improve lighting, create new information points and create a new gateway feature for the park in Granby Street car park.

A virtual engagement session about the Queen’s Park gateway feature is being held via Zoom at 5pm on Tuesday, April 12.

An in-person session is being held at 10am on Thursday, April 14 at Loughborough Town Hall.

To register your interest in attending a session, please email neighbourhoods.communities@charnwood.gov.uk

The Lanes, Links and Hope Bell Project is being supported by Loughborough Town Deal which has secured £16.9 million to invest in 11 projects.
