SHEFFIELD residents can use a new online consultation to nominate examples of street clutter they would like to have removed.
The survey, on Sheffield Council’s website, will allow locals to give their views over the next two weeks on unwanted signs, handrails and other items and the 20 examples with the most votes will then be removed.
Coun Ian Auckland, cabinet member for transport, said: “Local people tell us our streets have become too cluttered with silly signs and unnecessary rails. Now the Government is relaxing the rules we can give local people the chance to declutter by nominating items themselves.
“Just like the Driving Me Crazy scheme we are putting power into the hands of local people and moving away from the ‘Town Hall knows best’ attitude. What’s more, this should save the local taxpayer money in the long run.”
Log onto www.sheffield.gov.uk and enter ‘signs off’ in the search box to make a nomination.
