What is ConCensus

The Council of Citizen Engagement in Sustainable Urban Strategies (ConCensus) is an initiative within the EU funded POWER project in Leicester.


ConCensus is a transparent, citizen-based method of decision making at a local level. It is an opportunity for you to represent citizens in local decision making.


Your River

We would like ConCensus to discuss the topic of "Your River". This is gathering together for ideas for what could happen to the River Soar (and its tributaries) which passes through Leicester.


Suggestions could be for better access more attractive areas, reduce the amount of litter and plastic waste along its banks, and increase leisure facilities along the river. The social platform will be utilised in order for you to submit your views.


The idea of "Your River" was discussed at a workshop on Friday 8th of March with local citizens and representitives from stakholder groups.


The next workshop to formulate the ConCensus group for "Your River" is scheduled for Tuesday 4th of June 2019. If you would like to partcipiate in the next workshop or have any questions, please email
