On Friday I visited Perfectly Edible’s West End café at Leicester’s West End Centre. It was fantastic to see so many people there enjoying the delicious food!

Thanks to donations from local supermarkets Gemma and the team at Perfectly Edible do an incredible job in reducing food waste and ensuring that local people can enjoy a lovely fresh meal! While there I also chatted to students from Leicester College who are taking part in some work experience. 

The café is open every Friday at Leicester Centre for Integrated Living. You can find our more here.

Crime is a top concern for many of my constituents. I recently met the new Local Policing Unit Commander for Hinckley Road LPU, Inspector Andy Parkes to discuss a range of issues, including what the police are doing to reduce the number of burglaries in the area.

I will be working closely with Inspector Parkes to tackle this and other local policing issues in the months and years ahead. If you’re interested in finding out more about what the Hinckley Road LPU is doing, you can follow Inspector Parkes on twitter: @HinckleyRoadLPU

A planning application has been submitted to the City Council to build a new supermarket on the former MFI sites follows:

‘Food/Retail store (Class A1) following demolition of existing buildings, with associated car park and service yard; alterations to vehicle access from New Park Street; associated highway works on New Park Street and Narborough Road North’

The application can be viewed online by searching the planning database for application number 20101687 or in person at New Walk Centre customer service centre.

Your local councillors Andy Connelly and Sarah Russell have asked for this application to be heard by the Planning and Development Control Committee and need your views on the plans and how they would affect your shopping habits.

Please take the time to fill in and return this questionnaire. You may also wish to make representations directly to the Planning Service by phoning the officer dealing with the application, Daryl Watson on 0116 252 7265 or emailing planning {at}

I recently held a meeting with around 50 local businesses, council officers and Councillor Sarah Russell to discuss the impact of the Narborough Road pilot parking scheme and the likely development of a new supermarket on the MFI site on Braunstone Gate. I will continue to work closely with our Westcotes councillors to assess the implications for local residents and businesses of both these issues.
