9-14 New Street

10 to 14 New Street undergoing regeneration

New Street was laid out during the 18th Century. The domestic scale and Georgian architectural features have created a particularly significant townscape.

Brief history

By 1835 New Street had become the location of Leicester's legal professions, although the majority of firms have now left the area, leaving empty office buildings. Fortunately, the area has attracted renewed interest as high quality housing.

Grant applications to repair and restore the frontages of several properties on New Street have been approved and works are underway.
