We Did

On 5 April 2016 Leicester City Council formally adopted a boundary for Knighton Neighbourhood area which was amended based on representations received during the consultation. The amendments made to the boundary were to include all of Birkdale Avenue and to exclude some properties on Knighton Lane East which form part Knighton Fields.


Leicester City Council has received an application for the designation of a Neighbourhood Area. The proposed area covers most of the Knighton Ward and  is to be known as the ‘Knighton Neighbourhood Area’. All residents within the proposed area will or be soon receiving a letter notifying them of the proposal.

This is the first stage in the process of the Knighton Neighbourhood plan. A Neighbourhood Plan is a community-led framework for guiding the future development and growth of an area. The first formal step in the neighbourhood planning process is to consult the community within or close to the proposed boundary on whether the neighbourhood area submitted seems appropriate. 

The plan has been proposed by the Knighton Neighbourhood Forum. See below link to their website :
