New Prison Development
In 2017, the Ministry of Justice (MOJ) obtained outline planning permission to build a new prison on the site of the former HM Prison and Young Offender Institution Glen Parva. Work on the design for the prison at Glen Parva continues with construction scheduled to commence next year.
The MOJ is keen to give local residents the opportunity to view the proposed plans. There is a public preview event at Saint Thomas the Apostle Church on St Thomas Road, Wigston LE18 4TA ‐ Friday 25th October between 3:00 pm and 9:00 pm. For further details click here.
