Gateway to city gets makeover

Have your say

A GATEWAY to Sheffield is in full bloom thanks to council bosses.

A collection of floral hanging baskets and planters have been placed at the junction of Atterclife Road and Staniforth Road in a bid to brighten the area.

The display is part of Sheffield Council’s Attercliffe action plan, which aims to improve the environment with a number of projects.

Long term plans for development include reviving the revive iconic buildings such as the Adelphi Theatre, building new housing and relandscaping the Cocked Hat village green to restore its place in the heart of the Attercliffe community.

The council has worked with local businesses to give the busy road softer, more vibrant surroundings. It was funded with contributions from the East Community Assembly, Highfield Motors, New Roomstyle and G6 Spaces.

Coun Harry Harpham, Sheffield Council’s cabinet member for homes and neighbourhoods, said: “These floral displays are a sign of the work in the area which, in the near future, will also bring to Attercliffe further environmental improvements, better green spaces and new homes.

“It is good to see the developing relationship between the council and local businesses who have come together to make this happen. This teamwork is vital to the successful regeneration of Attercliffe as an important and vibrant area of Sheffield.”
