As a result of the support of the proposals, the City Mayor has approved the implementation of the scheme which is scheduled to come into force in Spring 2022.


Leicester City Council is proposed to change the speed limit from 30mph to 20mph on the streets around Abbey Mead School.

Why your views matter

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.
