We Asked

We asked for your views on a proposed 20mph zone for the Downing Drive Area.


You Said

Consultations were carried out by a letter drop to local residents and advertising on the Leicester City Council website.

Of the 302 responses received, 220 (73%) were in favour of the proposed 20mph speed limit, and 158 (52%) were in favour of the proposed traffic calming.


We Did

As a result of the support shown for the proposals the City Mayor has approved implementation of the scheme which is programmed to be implemented during the spring 2018.



Leicester City Council is proposing to reduce the speed limit from 30mph to 20mph in the Downing Drive Area of Leicester. It is also proposed to install speed cushions to slow vehicle speeds on Downing Drive and Marydene Drive.

Why We Are Consulting

Leicester City Council is consulting to obtain the views of residents and businesses within the area. The results of the consultations will be summarised and reported to the City Mayor for a decision on how the scheme will proceed.
