Proposed new prison in Market Harborough: Public Consultation

Closed 2 Aug 2021

Opened 28 Jun 2021


The Ministry of Justice is seeking the views of residents and businesses on proposed plans for a new prison near Market Harborough.

Having reviewed a number of sites across the country, we believe that land next to HMP Gartree, near Market Harborough would be an appropriate location for a new prison.

Before we progress with these proposals, we want to engage with you and your local community to ensure your views are considered and to share with you the benefits that a potential new prison will bring to Harborough, such as: creating new and local employment opportunities; offering apprenticeships; upskilling people in construction; and spending locally and with social enterprises.
