A £19m scheme is set to change the face of Leicester city centre over the next three years as work begins on Leicester City Council’s Streets + Spaces project.
The project aims to make Leicester more attractive to live and work in, while improving access and celebrating the cultural diversity of the city. Consistent high-quality design and materials will be used across the project, including high-quality paving, new seating, street furniture and soft landscaping.
The council last week launched a poster campaign to raise public awareness, featuring images of how the completed work will look.
Plans for regeneration and the council’s overall strategy were shaped by an extensive public consultation held in August 2005 and an information event in October.
Gallow Tree Gate, Horsefair Street and the Granby Street/Halford Street junction will be the first zones to benefit from the project.
