We Asked

We asked for your views on proposals for a 20mph speed limit in the Harrison Road area.

You Said

13 responses were received to the e-consultation. 10 respondents were in favour of the 20mph speed limit.

We Did

The overall response to consultation was 90% in favour of the 20mph speed limit. The City Mayor has approved implementation of the scheme.

Overview

 Leicester City Council is proposing to change the speed limit from 30mph to 20mph on streets in the Harrison Road Area.

Most of the streets in the area have already been traffic calmed with road humps.  However, the speed limit has not been changed from 30mph to 20mph.  This is what this proposal is planning to do.  It will bring the Harrison Road Area in line with other similar residential areas across the city.

 This proposed change is part of a programme of new 20mph zones which was confirmed by the City Mayor on 12th June 2012.

 Money has been set aside from the Integrated Capital Programme to pay for the changes.

 

Why We Are Consulting

The Transport Strategy Team is now consulting residents and other interested parties for their views on the proposed changes.  This consultation will be the basis on which the Deputy City Mayor will make his decision on whether to change the speed limit or not.

What Happens Next

All responses we receive will be analysed and collated into a report for the Deputy City Mayor.  He will then use the information to decide whether or not to go ahead with the changes or whether the proposal should be amended.
