We asked

What was either important or very important for Jubilee Square.

You said

- Pedestrian connections - Green open spaces - Landscaping and seating - Cafe and amenities - Space for events

We ensured that the landscape designers used this information to develop their concept design of Jubilee Square so that we could deliver a scheme based on what was important to the local community.

Results updated 18 Feb 2013


Last year, I invited you to comment on our proposals to create Jubilee Square at the end of High Street. You can download a copy of the findings report at the bottom of this page.
Your comments helped us create the new concept design, which you can see on our Jubilee Square page. 
Our 2nd consultation on that concept design closed on in December 2012. Thanks to everyone who had their say online and came to our roadshows. Download your copy of the findings report at the bottom of this page.

Welcome to the Connecting Leicester Consultation.

Our vision for Connecting Leicester is to create a thriving heart of the city by improving the connections between shopping, leisure, heritage, housing and transport facilities, all linked by accessible high quality pedestrian routes.

Our priority is to create excellent connections to provide a safe and family-friendly city centre.

We believe the Connecting Leicester project can make the city an even better place to live, work and to visit, as well as ensuring the city centre thrives as a focus for Leicester in the future.
