Consultation Hub

Your participation makes a difference

When making important decisions about local public services, the city council promises to keep you informed, listen to and acknowledge concerns and aspirations, and provide feedback on how public input influenced the decision.

Where it makes sense to do so, we will look to you for advice and innovation in solving problems and incorporate your advice and recommendations into the decisions to the maximum extent possible.

This website will help you to find and participate in consultations that interest you.

You can also follow us on twitter or subscribe to our RSS feed.

To submit general comments on issues not currently being consulted upon, please use one of our comments, compliments and complaints options.

We Asked, You Said, We Did

Below are some of the issues we have recently consulted on and their outcomes.

Proposed 20mph Zone - Laburnum Road Area

We asked:
We asked for your views on the proposed 20mph zone in the Laburnum Road Area.
You said:
We had 1 response to the e-consultation. It was in favour of both the 20mph speed limit and the traffic calming. A paper consultation was also delivered directly to local residents. We had 92 responses and 89 were in favour of the 20mph speed limit whilst 69 were in favour of the traffic calming.
We did:
As a result of the overwhelming support, the City Mayor has approved implementation of the scheme.

Community Infrastructure Levy - Preliminary Draft Charging Schedule

We asked:
We asked for your views on the Provisional Draft Charging Schedule for the proposed Leicester Community Infrastructure Levy. We wanted to know whether the viability evidence was accurate and whether the proposed charging rates were appropriate.
You said:
Comments were received relating to the viability evidence and infrastructure as well as further clarification being sought on evidence and the application of some of the proposed rates.
We did:
After reviewing the results and because of recent changes to government legislation we have updated the viability evidence . We have also decided to look again at some of the proposed rates, as well as providing clearer guidance on the charge itself. In accordance with government guidance we are preparing the Draft Charging Schedule, which is the second stage of the CIL consultation process. Consultation will commence later this year.

Printed Music & Drama Service Consultation

We asked:
We asked for your views on the proposed self-service model for the Printed Music and Drama Service. We also asked for any other suggestions for delivering a sustainable service for the future.
You said:
The majority of groups responding to the questionnaire have indicated that they would continue to use the proposed self-service model for the Printed Music and Drama Service. However, there is significant concern amongst most respondents with regard to the withdrawal of Inter Library Loans and advanced bookings and reservations. A number of alternative suggestions were made for delivering a sustainable service. The proposed relocation of the service was regarded by most a less problematic so long as good parking and access are available. For a more detailed report please see the attached results.
We did:
After reviewing the results we have committed to a further period of research to investigate the feasibility of the suggestions which have been made. Once we have identified the realistic options we will begin a second stage of public consultation. Following feedback with regard to the relocation of the service the Printed Music and Drama collection will move to Fosse Centre Library on Mantle Road in September with its current levels of service. The move is necessary as the space at Southfields library is now required for other purposes and there is reasonable parking at the Fosse Centre. Further details of the move will be sent out to groups in good time.

During the consultation process, we ask for your feedback, you tell us and then we make positive changes. Public participation is key to our work. See what happens with We Asked, You Said, We Did.
