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 how the proposed Putney Road scheme will affect the way you travel, as well as whether there were any other concerns with the scheme.

You Said

In total, 291 responses were received. 60.1% of these were opposed to the scheme, while 25.4% were positive. The remaining 14.4% of the responses were neutral or balanced.
The main points raised were the concern that the scheme will increase traffic in the surrounding areas, in particular Victoria Park Road and the Clarendon Park area, and that this will negatively affect air quality.
A further concern was that the scheme only caters to car users and does not do enough for sustainable modes of transport.

We Did

Monitoring the impacts of large highway schemes is undertaken by the city council on many large highway schemes. Due to concerns raised in the public consultation, we will monitor traffic flows in and around the Clarendon Park area and air quality in several locations.
Design changes have been made to the scheme to improve it for walkers and cyclists. The council is taking a balanced approach to improving transport in the city – there is a second NPIF funded project which will improve public transport.

We Asked

We asked for your views on proposed traffic calming measures in the Eyres Monsell area.

4,300 consultation packs were delivered to households in the area and 625 responses were received (including 44 online). This represents a 15% response rate.

You Said

72% of respondents were supportive of the introduction of a 20mph zone, while 25% were against.

60% or respondents voted for the traffic calming on Glenhills Boulevard, with 32% against.
 

We Did

These results will be reported to the City Mayor along with a summary of comments made as part of the consultation.

We Asked

We asked for views on proposed changes to the admissions arrangements for entry into community and controlled schools from August 2019. The proposed changes are shown below:

  • To give priority to previously looked after children from outside England
  • To increase the sibling priority to include siblings in attendance in Year 11
  • To remove the domestic violence criteria and replace with a social and medical criterion
  • To add a new oversubscription criterion that gives priority for children of staff
  • To amend the admission arrangements relating to Fosse Primary School and Slater Primary School

The consultation was brought to the attention of:

  • Neighbouring local authorities
  • The admission forum
  • Parents of children in all Leicester city schools
  • The Nottingham Diocese / Diocese of Leicester
  • Parents with children in Early Year settings
  • General public through information on website / advert in Leicester Mercury.

You Said

A total of 31 responses were received with the majority of responses in favour of the proposed changes. The only mixed responses received were in respect of proposed change 4 (To add a new oversubscription criterion that gives priority for children of staff). Although the  majority of responses received were supportive of the proposed change, there were two negative responses and these are shown below.
 

  • As it will be low priority it would not provide space for many applicants in any case. Why should place of work be a priority over other working places (childcare issues are the main reasons for appeals).
  • This can look like an abuse of position although it does make sense if it sits in the position suggested. Details of how many places were awarded and under what criterion every year would help with transparency.

We Did

The Assistant City Mayor for Children and Young Peoples Services considered the responses and has made a decision to implement the new admission arrangements for entry from August 2019.  The full set of arrangements have been published online.
