Have your say on green field housing plans

Have your say

DROP-in consultation events are being held where people can give views on proposals to build 1,100 homes on 18 mostly green sites in Sheffield.

Sheffield Council planning chiefs say they want to earmark the sites for homes because they do not have enough brownfield land to build all the new homes demanded by the Government.

Dates confirmed are: Friday, January 27, at Worrall Memorial Hall, from 3pm to 7pm; Monday, January 30, at Stocksbridge Library, from 2pm to 6.30pm; Thursday, February 2, at the South West Community Assembly meeting, Stephen Hill Methodist Church, Crosspool, from 3pm to 8pm; on Friday, February 3, at Woodhouse Library, from 10am to 12.30pm and 1.30pm to 7.30pm; and Stannington Library, from 2pm to 6.30pm.

Further drop-in sessions will be held, which will be posted along with the plans, at www.sheffield.gov.uk/sdfconsult. People can view the proposals at libraries and First Point offices.
