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 comments and level of support for our proposed Public Space Protection Order (PSPO) for the continuation of street drinking. This will give police additional powers to enforce restrictions, (and in some cases make arrests) where people are displaying anti-social behaviour while drinking.

You Said

Of the 810 respondents;
a)    86.17% think street drinking continues to be an issue in Leicester
b)    48.52% had a problem with street drinkers
c)    36.91% stated that there was a problem with groups of street drinkers
d)    26.42% experienced problems with street drinking every day
e)    25.19% think current order has helped in dealing with street drinking
f)    89.51% support the continuation of a citywide street drinking order

Specific problems experienced by respondents were:
•    36.67% littering
•    35.06% intimidation
•    39.51% noise
•    35.43% verbal abuse
•    15.19% physical abuse
 

We Did

We are considering the continuation of the street drinking order in light of the fact that 89.51% of the respondents have stated their support.

We Asked

We asked for peoples’ views on how neighbourhood services in the East and Central areas of the city could be transformed. We asked for information on how the services are used now and for opinions on how buildings and services could change.

You Said

  • that the services provided were more important than particular buildings
  • that libraries and the functions they perform, and likewise the activities in community centres are important for local people
  • that the services could be combined into fewer buildings, based on usage, location and proximity of other sites
  • that there should be better advertising of community spaces that are available for hire to increase usage and income
  • that money could be raised by increasing community room hire charges and by reorganising the use of space in some buildings to accommodate more hires

We Did

We are now analysing the responses received in more detail and using these to develop a draft set of proposals. We will consult on these separately when they have been developed.

We Asked

We asked for your comments to review the council’s housing register and the proposed changes to the council’s housing allocations policy.

You Said

Overall the range of responses was between 51% - 70% stating that the changes would have either a positive effect or no effect upon them, compared with 4% - 34% of the respondents who stated the proposals would have a negative effect on them.

We Did

Following the consultation, council’s executive approved the changes proposed to the housing allocations policy.  This is now in the process of being implemented.
