Fuel poverty, health and transport will be the key issues discussed at a Green Commission hearing to discuss the environmental issues facing Sheffield.

The commission was set up to allow leaders to raise the profile of green issues over the next 15 to 20 years.

It will have its first public hearing tomorow at 6pm in the Town Hall when evidence will be presented by expert witnesses.

The meeting will be the first of six hearings to be held in public and will lead to a report which will contain short, medium and long term recommendations for Sheffield Council.

Coun Jayne Dunn, cabinet member for environment, said: “This is a significant commitment for Sheffield on an issue which affects everyone’s future.

“The choices we make now will affect our future resilience as a city, so I would encourage anyone who is interested in the sustainability of the city to get involved.”

Green Commissioner Frances Wells added: “This is the start of a conversation about a sustainable future for Sheffield.”
