Charnwood is a borough within the northern part of the ceremonial County of Leicestershire, in the East Midlands region of the United Kingdom. The borough is named after Charnwood Forest, which it contains and also contains the large settlement of Loughborough which serves as the administrative centre for the borough. The borough borders the City of Leicester to the south and the settlements of Quorn, Barrow-on-Soar, Mountsorrel, Birstall, Thurmaston, Syston and East Goscote are found in the 20km corridor of the borough which stands between Loughborough and Leicester.
The formation Of Charnwood
The district of Charnwood was officially formed on the 1st April 1974 when the municipal borough of Loughborough, the Shepshed urban district and the Barrow upon Soar rural district all merged to make a much larger entity. After this merger, Charnwood became the largest borough by population in the whole of Leicestershire and according to the latest available census data it now supports a permanent resident population of more than 165,000 people. This significant level of population therefore inevitably means that accidents and injuries are more common in the district, so it is this that makes it logical for us to now talk about issues surrounding compensation claims in Charnwood.
