We the undersigned petition the council to make Wigston a place people would like to visit and enjoy going to. The streets of Wigston Town centre need cleaning, removal of litter, bins emptying more regularly and graffiti cleaned off the floors and walls. The costs of premises to have a shop needs to be lowered as we have so many empty shops and it’s looking like a ghost town. Wigston arcade could be a great place to go - you could have entertainment in there, things for children to do on small stalls (free crafts) etc, bring people back to shop in Wigston rather than online or elsewhere.
When walking around Wigston, it is full of empty shops, litter,
graffiti, broken walls and even a settee has been dumped in
Fredrick Street. The shops that we do have are either hairdressers,
charity shops or food outlets. We’ve lost the post office and
banks are closing down, but what are these going to be replaced
with? More food outlets?? Lower the rates and bring back some good
outlets, market stalls, entertainment so people enjoy shopping in
our local town.
This ePetition runs from 06/04/2021 to 18/05/2021.
