Leicestershire Lockdown

30 June 2020

Following the news that Leicester and some surrounding areas are now subject to a local lockdown, Platform Housing have no alternative but to revert back to the lockdown measures previously in place.

This means that we will only be carrying out emergency repairs, gas safety and compliance activities in the affected areas.

The areas of Leicestershire included in the localised lockdown are:

Leicester City

In Blaby District:

• Braunstone Town (including Fosse Park)

• Glenfield

• Glen Parva

• Leicester Forest East (East of the M1)

• Thorpe Astley

In Charnwood:

• Birstall

• Thurmaston

All areas of Oadby and Wigston.

The health and wellbeing of our most vulnerable residents remains of the utmost importance to us and our teams will again be working with a number of partners and charities to provide the necessary support where needed.  If you are affected by this local lockdown and do need any additional help or support please get in touch with us on 0333 200 7304.
