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 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.

Festivals review

We Asked:

We asked for comments on our review of city festival funding.

You Said:

The review should allocate funding more equally between the festivals and events of all the city’s communities.

We Did:

The final budget proposals are now being developed and have been informed by feedback from the consultation. The proposals will be implemented in the coming months.

Victoria Park Tennis Courts - online booking

We Asked:

whether you were in favour of a booking system at the Victoria Park tennis courts, including the possibility of a block booking arrangement with the University of Leicester.

You Said:

You were in favour of a booking system but not a mass block booking arrangement with the University of Leicester.

We Did:

Following the consultation we have considered your feedback and decided to revise the block booking proposal by reducing the amount of time the University can block book the courts.

New wildflower meadow

We Asked:

We asked for suggestions for a suitable name for a new wildflower meadow.

You Said:

Seven suggestions were offered:

  • Wolsey Gardens
  • The Ellis Meadow
  • Abbey Waterside Centre
  • Ellismeadows
  • John Ellis Freedom Site
  • John Ellis Wildflower Meadow
  • John Ellis Meadow
We Did:

As a result of the suggestions, a decision has been taken to name the site Ellis Meadow.
