Humberstone gate, Belgrave gate (you'll probably reference the improved of Haymarket bus Station, however there are more homeless people around there than I used too see 5 years ago), market place is a dive. 

 

I wouldn't say any of those are considerably worse than they were five years ago tbh.

Subjective. I'd also say the amount of homeless has increased dramatically.

What's happened on Humberstone Gate over the past five years to significantly worsen it? I'd argue that that area, if anything, is getting a little better - the cultural quarter and the Phoenix having a bit of an effect on it.
 

Homelessness isn't an issue specific to Leicester though. I live in the middle of Nottingham and it's worse here, considerably so - and Birmingham is insane for it.

Also the Market Place is loads better than it was five years ago, still needs work / finishing but the way the city has tried to link it to Greyfriars via the back of the Knight and Garter with that open space is commendable.

Fair enough to say this is subjective but if I were to walk around Leicester five years ago in comparison to now, I know which I'd prefer.

New road Inn is dead as a Dodo, fcuk knows how they make money.

Yeah, it's rubbish. Pretty sure all they have on tap is Fosters, Strongbow, Carling and John Smiths.

Humberstone Gate and Belgrave Gate have always been the rough ends of town - even back when I was a kid. 

 

Market Place is getting better - the actual square ain't been a bad idea when they events on (of which I know there is at least 1 every month)
