We Asked

We asked for your views on a proposed 20mph Zone for the Knighton Fields area.

You Said

Consultations were carried out by letter drop to frontage properties and advertising on the city council's website.

Of the 160 responses made, 135 (84%) were in favour of the 20mph speed limit, and 102 (64%) were in favour of the proposed traffic calming.

We Did

As a result of the support shown for these proposals the city mayor has approved implementation of the scheme which is programmed to be implemented during the summer 2017.


Leicester City Council is proposing to implement a 20mph Zone in the Knighton Fields Area of Leicester.

As part of this project it is proposed to reduce the speed limit in the area from 30mph to 20mph. It is also proposed to install traffic calming (road humps and speed cushions) outside The Lancaster School and Sir Jonathan North Community College on Knighton Lane East, and speed cushions on Knighton Fields Road East and Wordsworth Road.

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 analysed and presented in a report which will make recommendations about whether and if so how the scheme will procede.
