Consultation over new homes plan for Fir Vale

Have your say

New affordable homes are to be built in Sheffield.

They will be between the A6135 Barnsley Road and Earl Marshal Road in Fir Vale by Sheffield Housing Company.

Consultation with local residents could begin early next year.
The project has been brought forward from 2015 because of demand.

The organisation is a partnership between the council, building firm Keepmoat and Great Places Housing Group.

Coun Talib Hussain, said: “Local people and local councillors have been waiting a long time to see houses being built on this site so this is great news which I am sure will be welcomed by the Fir Vale community.”

A third will be for rent or shared ownership and the remainder for private sale.
