We Asked, You Said, We Did

Here are some of the issues we have consulted on and their outcomes. See all outcomes

We Asked

We asked people to tell us the possible impact of five proposals to re-configure our homeless services to ensure the most vulnerable receive the support they need.
 

You Said

We received 200 responses to the on-line consultation.

75% of people thought the proposal to reduce the council’s support housing for single people and couples by 60 units would have a negative impact and could lead to more homelessness.

68% of people thought the proposal to reduce the number of offender accommodation we commission from 30 to 15 would have a negative impact and could increase the risk of re-offending.

An equal number of people (33%) thought a review of how support was provided to people at the Dawn Centre and Border House would have negative or positive impact. 

People said they needed more information about the outcome of the review to comment fully.

81.5% of people said the ending of grant subsidies for Leicestershire Cares, the Centre Project and One Roof, Leicester would have a negative impact.  People felt vulnerable adults would not be able to access support and social isolation would increase.

54% of people said the ending of the specific floating support services for offenders would have a negative impact. The loss of expertise and knowledge of this group of people could mean they are provided with less support for generic floating support services.

 

We Did

We will be reviewing our proposals following the feedback and are developing further options.

These will be considered by the Housing Scrutiny Commission on 15 November 2016 before an Executive decision is made.

We Asked

We invited members of the public and local businesses and organisations to comment on proposed changes to the local council tax reduction scheme – mainly whether we should change the level of support available.

You Said

A greater percentage of respondents reacted positively to Option 1 (no change to the current rate of support at 80%) than Option 2 or 3 (reduce the level of support to 75% and 70% respectively).

We Did

We will not be introducing any changes to the current scheme but will review the situation in one year’s time.

We Asked

Your thoughts and level of support for Leicester City Council and Leicestershire Police to continue to enforce dog fouling and control issues within the city.
 

You Said

An overwhelming level of support was given, with a minimum percentage of 84% responding yes to each question to support enforcement of dog fouling and control issues in the city.
 

We Did

Responding to the level of support we will now start the process for a new enforcement legislation in accordance to The Clean Neighbourhoods and Environment Act 2005 to enable Leicester City Council and Leicestershire Police to continue to enforce dog fouling and control issues within the city.
