Here is a list of the types of homes needed in each Sheffield neighbourhood according to the council
Sheffield will need 900 new affordable homes every year for its growing population.
Officers have split the city into 13 areas and pinpointed what each place needs – from family homes to retirement villages.
Significant shortfall of affordable housing and also a demand for larger accommodation and home ownership. Ten per cent of older households would consider living in the city centre.
Chapeltown, Ecclesfield, Burncross, Grenoside and High Green
Lack of smaller properties for downsizing and people starting out.
Burngreave, Darnall, Fir Vale and Tinsley
Demand is high for social rented housing and there is a strong need for small flats, large houses and sheltered social housing. Significant capacity for housing along the canal.
Arbourthorne, Gleadless, Manor, Norfolk Park and Wybourn
Afford housing remains an issue and there is a growing need for older people’s social rented accommodation.
Brightside, Firth Park, Fox Hill, Parson Cross, Shiregreen and Wincobank
A significant shortfall of accommodation for older people, particularly social rented. There is also a need for four-bed homes.
Hillsborough, Stannington, Wadsley and Walkley
A shortfall of smaller one and two-bed homes which affects people starting out as well as downsizers.
Peak District Fringe including parts of Lodge Moor and Dore
A significant number of potential movers want smaller, more affordable homes. There’s also a demand for private rented housing.
Oughtibridge, Wharncliffe Side and Worrall
Few opportunities for downsizing or smaller properties in the private rented sector. An increasing need for accommodation for older people.
Batemoor, Beauchief, Greenhill, Lowedges, Norton and Woodseats
Some neighbourhoods have very low levels of social housing. There’s a particular need for new affordable housing and smaller homes for sale.
Beighton, Handsworth, Mosborough, Owlthorpe, Richmond and Woodhouse
Few starter homes or downsizing opportunities available. By 2038, this area will have the highest shortfall of specialist older people’s housing.
Bradway, Dore, Ecclesall, Fulwood, Millhouses, Ranmoor and Totley
Only a small private and social rented sector, so those unable to buy are likely to need to move elsewhere. Needs more diversity including older people’s independent living, smaller homes for private rent and also homes for social rent.
Stocksbridge and Deepcar
Relatively low supply of one and two-bed homes. There is no extra care provision for older people in this area.
Broomhill, Crookes, Crosspool, Heeley, Nether Edge
Has the greatest overall need for affordable housing, with higher than average house prices but also significant numbers of households that are on lower incomes. Limited opportunities to allocate land – recent housing has largely been apartments. Infirmary Road offers opportunities for new housing.
The Local Plan is a document which both the council and developers can refer to, outlining sites available for development and protecting greenfield and green belt sites. But Sheffield’s won’t be finalised until 2023.
The council said the process of drawing one up was lengthy to allow for several stages of public consultation.
The draft plan should be presented this September.
