Opinions sought on city changes
Market Place
The Market Place has been used for hundreds of years
The future of two of Leicester's most historic areas could be shaped by two exhibitions going before the public.

The city council is holding the events so the public can have their say on the future of the 700-year-old Market Place and the 18th century Belgrave Hall.

Both locations are in conservation areas and officials want to know how people expect them to be developed.

The exhibitions will be at the New Walk Centre and Belgrave Hall museum itself at the beginning of October.

A spokesman for the council said: "Both sites are conservation areas, meaning they are considered to be of special historic or architectural interest, and preserving or enhancing their unique character is encouraged.

"Leicester City Council is holding two events for the public to give their comments how they feel the sites look, what they like or dislike about them, how they could be improved and whether their boundaries need to be extended."
