Transforming Neighbourhood Services

Your local services are going to change. These include libraries, community services, adult learning and local customer service points. We want to work with you to make these services fit for the future.

Please note: Since 10pm on 23rd April the council’s online consultation service has been unavailable due to a technical fault.  This fault is being treated as a critical incident with the highest level of priority.  A further update will be provided on 25th as it is not yet known when the service will resume.

Why are services changing?

  • Significant cuts in government funding mean we will not be able to continue to run services as we do now.
  • We want to work with communities to make changes now, before it becomes critical.
  • We are reviewing how neighbourhood services are run to make sure that they are affordable and can respond to local people’s needs.
  • Leicester City Council is committed to providing high quality neighbourhood services.

How do we make changes?

We will be working with local people and community organisations to look at the best way to deliver services in future.
The options that we are looking at include:
  • reducing the number of buildings we own
  • merging services into shared buildings: this has worked well elsewhere in Leicester and has led to longer opening hours
  • involving local people in running some services
  • self-service facilities.
