My colleagues and I want to transform our existing St Nicholas Place area into an attractive public space and gateway into the city centre. This is a key project that's part our wider Connecting Leicester vision to reconnect the city.
Read our latest press release on Jubilee Square.
Our first consultation
Last year, I invited you to comment on our proposals to create Jubilee Square at the end of High Street. We received around 250 responses and you can download a copy of the findings report at the bottom of this page.
Your comments helped us create the new concept design, which you can see in our video above. You can also see our concept design images here.
Our second consultation
Our 2nd consultation on the concept design happened in November and December 2012.
Thanks to everyone who had their say online and came to our road shows. Your comments will help us take forward our plans for the area.
We received around nearly 150 responses and you can download a copy of the findings report at the bottom of this page.
Our proposals for Jubilee Square
Our Jubilee Square project includes the following proposed changes:
- transforms the area to create an attractive new square and gateway into the city centre.
- minimises the impact of traffic with a new priority for pedestrians.
- makes attractive connections between a key city centre arrival point and shopping and heritage areas, helping to increase footfall to businesses.
- opens up views and access to Wygston’s House.
- relocates the park and ride bus stops to St. Nicholas Circle.
- provides alternative provision for taxis.
- introduces new signage and interpretation of the area’s history.
- options are being considered for alternative parking provision and for new spaces for blue
badge holders at on-street locations.
