We asked for your views on the proposed 20mph zone for the Fairfax Road area.

You Said

We received 18 responses to the online consultation. Thirteen were in favour of  the 20mph speed limit.

A paper consultation was also delivered directly to local residents. We had 244 responses to this, representing a 27% response rate.

Of these responses, 201 people (82%) were in favour of the 20mph speed limit.

We Did

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 the Fairfax Road Area.

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.
