We Asked, You Said, We Did

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

We asked

In February / March 2023 we undertook a consultation with residents and businesses in the Aylestone Park area to obtain views on a potential residents parking scheme and new one-way streets.

We asked respondents to give their views on the following options for residential parking: 

  • Do you support the introduction of a residents permit scheme in operation from 1-9pm, 7 days a week?

We also asked residents and businesses for their views on introducing one-way streets in the area to reduce through traffic and help improve safe parking provision.

You said

Approximately 3,630 residential and business properties were invited to take part in the consultation. 817 responses were received on paper and via this website from residents and businesses in the area. Responses were analysed by council officers.

  • 580 residents and business responded ‘No’ to the proposed residential parking scheme (71%)
  • 218 residents responded ‘Yes’ to the proposed residential parking scheme (26.7%)
  • 17 residents selected ‘No opinion either way’ (2.1%)
  • 2 respondents didn’t provide any information on their choice (0.2%)

In addition, respondents included comments both for and against residents parking in the area as well as for the proposed one-way streets. 

We did

The response data and comments are currently being analysed in more detail prior to determining whether or not to continue with further engagement with residents and businesses over potential measures to manage parking in the area. 

The analysis of the one-way system direction results is still ongoing. It is envisaged that preliminary results will be available in Summer 2023. 

We asked

We consulted on our proposal to extend existing Public Spaces Protection Orders (PSPO) for three elements of dog control in the city:

  1. Dog fouling
  2. Dogs on leads
  3. Dog exclusion areas

We asked the public and stakeholders if they had any objections to the proposal and provided an opportunity to leave feedback.

You said

337 responses were submitted. Nearly 99% of respondents were members of the public.

In summary, the responses were highly in support of extending all three PSPOs, as follows:

  1. Dog fouling - 95% in favour
  2. Dogs on leads - 91% in favour
  3. Dog exclusion areas - 88% in favour

Additional supportive stakeholder feedback was also received outside of this online process.

We did

All comments have been scrutinised and noted.

The evidence from reports and complaints to our customer services team, and enforcement action taken since the PSPO orders were introduced is in support of them being extended.

We now intend to seek approval from the city mayor to extend the PSPO orders for a further three years. Subject to this approval, notices will be posted in November 2022 confirming reintroduction, and we will publish the renewed orders on our website.

We asked

We sought views on the proposed intordution of a new Zebra crossing

You said

15 valid responses were received to the online consultation. 
We also carried out a paper consultation to residents close to the proposed crossing and traffic calming
40 letters were delivered. 17 replied (plus 15 online consultation replies)
25 (78%) were in favour of the proposed zebra crossing and associated traffic calming, 5 (16%) against and 2 (6%) made no selection.

We did

As a result of the support of the proposal, the Deputy City Mayor has approved the implementation of the scheme. Work was due to start on site in October 2022 and has now been completed.
