We did

Leicester City Council has ordered a refresh of the plants in the planters. One planter on Montague Road is in a poor condition and will be removed completely with a new tree planted in its place. Shared use cycleways will be installed in six of the cul de sacs. This will help to reduce the number of cyclists riding on the footway.


We are seeking views on the large brick planters we installed in the Clarendon Park area some years ago. The aim of the planters was to create cul-de-sacs which prevented vehicle access, while at the same time allowing pedestrian access.

We'd like local resident and visitor views on whether the planters should to remain in place, or if improvements should be made to the spaces they currently occupy.
