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 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 the proposal to bring together Fosse Primary School and Slater Primary School, to form a larger five form entry Fosse Primary School and formally close Slater Primary School.

You Said

A total of 39 respondents submitted comments.  

When asked the question do you agree with the proposal to bring the two schools together to form a larger five form entry Fosse Primary School, 20 respondents said yes, and 19 said no.

Positive comments in relation to the proposal included:

  • New facility for the community
  • Good sports, PE and greenery
  • Opportunities for staff development
  • Current schools too small
  • Great idea to bring together
  • Aggregate resources

Some of the main comments given for not supporting the proposals included:

  • Too big
  • Wrong lead school
  • Traffic and other health and safety concerns
  • Job security
  • Early years to key stage 1 transition concerns with the split site
  • Ecology concerns

Half of the 'No' responses from members of the public related to traffic and ecology concerns, rather than the educational statutory proposal, which this consultation relates to. The new building has planning approval, traffic and ecology issues are being addressed as part of the construction project.

We Did

The Deputy City Mayor for Children and Young Peoples Services considered the responses and has made a decision to continue to the next stage of the proposals - publication of a statutory notice followed by a four week period for statutory representations.

The statutory notice will be published on Monday 9 April (closes Sunday 6 May). At the end of which a further decision will need to be taken by the Executive as to whether to implement the proposals or not.

If implemented they will be effective from 31 August and 1 September 2019.

We Asked

We asked for views on a new homelessness strategy and related proposals. We wanted to find out whether there was agreement for the key aims of the strategy and actions proposed, and whether the related nine proposals were supported.
 

You Said

74 responses to the consultation questionnaire were received as well as other feedback from the Homelessness Reference Group (a forum of statutory and voluntary sector organisations that are involved with homelessness services) and Action Homeless’s Client Conference.

There was agreement with the strategy’s key aim. However there some concerns about how these would be delivered. The proposals made were also broadly supported, again the feedback received mainly related to how these the might be implemented.
 

We Did

The consultation feedback was presented to Housing Scrutiny Commission on 15 January 2018. We will consider the feedback in detail before publishing the new homelessness strategy for Leicester.
