We Asked

We asked for your views on the proposed 20mph zone in the Laburnum Road Area.

You Said

We had 1 response to the e-consultation. It was in favour of both the 20mph speed limit and the traffic calming. A paper consultation was also delivered directly to local residents. We had 92 responses and 89 were in favour of the 20mph speed limit whilst 69 were in favour of the traffic calming.

We Did

As a result of the overwhelming support, the City Mayor has approved implementation of the scheme.


Leicester City Council is proposing to change the speed limit from 30mph to 20mph on roads in the Laburnum Road area.

In order to help constrain vehicular speeds, it is proposed to install traffic calming in the form of speed cushions on the northern part of Chestnut Avenue and on Fern Rise.

Persimmon Homes is funding the proposed scheme and there is no cost to Leicester City Council.

Why We Are Consulting

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