Remaking Sheffield: 15 key projects costing billions of pounds that will change the city explained

These 15 projects will see investment in the billions completely remodel Sheffield - here are all the major developments explained

Sheffield is set for massive growth in the six years, new residential, commercial, and leisure buildings are being approved left, right and centre - so we put together this list of the biggest projects that are set to make the most impact in the city.

Council leader Tom Hunt has been claiming Sheffield “is on the up” since he took power last year. And in many ways it appears to have turned a corner, thanks to a string of announcements of private and public sector investment.

The biggest recently was £67m for hundreds of new homes in two priority areas - Neepsend and Furnace Hill, near West Bar - from Government body Homes England.

The authority is also hoping for cash to kickstart redevelopment of the area around Midland Railway Station. 

The private sector is also active. The huge Attercliffe Waterside housing scheme is set to make significant progress this year as could Wicker Island and Loxley Valley.

The universities have long been significant players in Sheffield. Hallam’s development off Howard Street is set to have a huge impact while the University of Sheffield was central to the city bagging the country’s first Investment Zone set to create £1.2bn of investment and an incredible 8,000 jobs, according to Chancellor Jeremy Hunt.
