Signposting the Future

Visitors to Leicester this weekend will be pointed in the direction of regeneration.

Leicester Regeneration Company (LRC) has erected three signs in the city centre pointing the way to major regeneration projects.

As well as LRC’s five projects, the signs also point in the direction of the new performing arts centre, the cultural quarter and the hospital and university redevelopments.

John Nicholls, Chief Executive of LRC, said: “With so many people expected in the city for Expo we wanted a way to highlight the many exciting changes happening in, and planned for, Leicester.

“ The signposts are a fun way of showing people what’s going on. Instead of distances, the signs show the date the particular project is expected to be ready.”

The eight-foot high white metal signs are located at the Tourist Information Centre in Town Hall Square, the Clock Tower and at the Halford Street end of Gallowtree Gate.

Leicester Regeneration Company’s masterplan recommended five projects for the physical regeneration of central Leicester. Work is expected to start this year on two projects, the New Business Quarter and the Science and Technology Park. Good progress is being made on plans for the Waterside, New Community and the upgrading of the retail circuit.
