We Asked

We asked for your views on the draft proposal of the St George’s Cultural Quarter Action Plan.

You Said

62 survey responses were received and a further three stakeholders submitted letters.
80.6% supported the themes and actions put forward in the plan.

The three most favoured actions were:
- Enhancing the historic character and vibrancy of the area was the most supported action
- Improve cleanliness and general maintenance
- Support more cafes, bars and restaurants

The quantitative data showed theme 2 (an attractive and well connected public realm) to be the most supported theme - more actions were supported in this theme than any other

The qualitative data identified that theme 1 (an exciting and creative place to live, work and do business) received the most comments.

All three letters received from the stakeholders supported the draft Action Plan.

We Did

We are now reviewing all of the comments and re-drafting the Action Plan taking these in to consideration.

Results Updated 7 Apr 2017



Leiceste City Council is working closely with the Cultural Quarter Association, Curve, Phoenix, and others to accelerate the development of the Cultural Quarter and promote the area as a home for arts and creative industries with a national reputation.

We are consulting on the draft Action Plan which sets out how the Cultural Quarter can be a great place to live and work, and a lively place throughout the day, with a vibrant evening economy.
