Let’s all stand up for Sheffield

Have your say

SHEFFIELD Council has announced its four key priorities for the next three years as it prepares to implement multi-million pound cuts.

The authority – which anticipates it will have to reduce spending by a further £57m in 2012/13 – has put together a new corporate plan called Standing Up For Sheffield.

The priorities are ‘standing up for Sheffield’, ‘supporting and protecting communities’, ‘focusing on jobs’ and being ‘business friendly’.

The plan is set to be endorsed by the council’s ruling cabinet next week.

Council leader Julie Dore said: “Sheffield is a city that has so much going for it and we recognise at the council that we have to be more targeted and pin down what we do, where we spend our money and what we can prioritise – even more so in what will be difficult times ahead.

“We want to make Sheffield a great place to live, learn, work, visit and grow older. By following these priorities we believe we can all work together to show what Sheffield can do.”
