RESIDENTS have become the first in Sheffield to be directly consulted on the uses of their streets.
People living in the Rise S12 development in Hackenthorpe can have a greater say on what activities – from ball games to fairs – as well as traffic speeds apply to roads in the area.
The development has a new use order which means residents are consulted on the types of street use they are comfortable with.
Heather Garner, assistant project manager for developer Home Group, said: “Parents need to know their children can play safely near their homes and these new powers will give them a greater say in what happens in the area.”
Rise S12 has also won a police Secured by Design award for its anti-crime design with security features.
