Have your say

Sheffield residents are being given their last chance to have their say on the contents of a ‘masterplan’ to regenerate the city centre.

A six-week consultation on the council’s plans finishes at the end of this week, and people are being invited to voice their opinions on the scheme online.

The regeneration proposals feature three new business districts with office accommodation, plans to develop university campuses, transport improvements and a chain of linked hillside parks.

Five defined city centre housing neighbourhoods will also be created.

It is intended the work will tie in with the stalled Sevenstone shopping centre project.

Council leader Julie Dore said: “The city centre is crucial to driving forward our economy and creating jobs and growth.

“Nationally the economy has stood still over the past three years, which has inevitably impacted on Sheffield, but we remain determined to deliver our vision for a vibrant, 21st century city centre and we have set out plans which demonstrate how we will meet our ambitions for the development of the city centre over the coming years.

“The masterplan will shape Sheffield’s regeneration for the next decade and beyond.

“It is vital that this is a masterplan that speaks for Sheffield people and that is why we want as many people as possible to have their say on the proposals.”
