You can give your views on how the special character of one of Leicester’s 25 designated conservation areas should be preserved or enhanced.

Leicester City Council has launched a public consultation inviting comments on a new draft character appraisal and management plan for the Knighton Village conservation area.

The Knighton Village Conservation Area was first designated in 1975 to cover the historic core of the former village of Knighton.

The Hop! Bus service, which was launched in April 2023 as part of the city’s Greenlines electric bus programme, provides a free to use shuttle service to key locations around the city centre including Highcross, Leicester Market, Leicester Royal Infirmary, Jubilee Square and Leicester Station.

Over 100,000 passenger journeys had been made within five months of its launch, and latest figures show an average of 1,500 journeys every day, proving it has been a success.

Leicester City Council’s new draft Climate Emergency Action Plan 2023-28 sets out a series of proposals for how the city can further reduce carbon emissions and adapt to a changing climate.

It became open for public consultation earlier this month. 

The plan and supporting evidence, including all the comments and petitions received during the last of four consultation exercises undertaken by the city council, have now been passed to the Government, which will appoint inspectors to manage the public scrutiny and debate of the proposals early next year.

The city council is gathering information on the scale and impact of flooding in the city, following the unprecedented rainfall experienced in Leicester and across the county on 22 June this year.
