We Asked

We asked for your views on the proposed 20mph zone for the Keyham Lane area.

You Said

We received five responses to the online consultation. Three were in favour of  the 20mph speed limit and three were in favour of the proposed speed cushions.

A paper consultation was also delivered directly to local residents. We had 38 responses to this, representing a 19% response rate.

Of these responses, 33 (87%) were in favour of the 20mph speed limit and 20 (53%) were in favour with the proposed speed cushions.

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 April 2017.


Leicester City Council is proposing to change the speed limit from 30mph to 20mph on Keyham Lane and the surrounding area around Keyham Lodge School.  In addition, it is proposed to install speed cushions on Keyham Lane near to the school.

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.
