We asked for your views on the proposed 20mph zone for the Charnor Road area.
We received one response to the online consultation from outside the consultation area. This was against both the proposed 20mph speed limit and the proposed traffic calming.
A paper consultation was also delivered directly to local residents. We had 173 responses to this, representing a 20% response rate. Of these responses, 160 people (92%) were in favour of the 20mph speed limit and 145 (84%) were in favour of the proposed traffic calming.
As a result of the support for the proposal, the city mayor has approved implementation of the scheme which is scheduled to come into force in February 2017.
Leicester City Council is proposed to change the speed limit from 30mph to 20mph on the streets around Forest Lodge Primary School. To help reduce speeds and improve the safety of children attending the school, we are proposing to replace the existing poor quality speed cushions on Charnor Road and install speed cushions on Battersbee Road. It is also proposed to make the existing school keep clear markings mandatory.
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.
