Council to run Gleadless Valley consultation

Sheffield City Council are to run a consultation over the month of November about how to improve the Gleadless Valley area.

The Council were given £515,000 by the Government in March to develop a “masterplan” to improve the estate.

This funding came from the Estate Regeneration Programme, run by the Homes and Communities Agency.

Councillor Ben Curran, Cabinet Member for Planning and Development at Sheffield City Council, said: “Gleadless Valley is one of the city’s most iconic estates, and has a strong community, good transport links, lots of open space and great views across the city. But it hasn’t had the investment it deserves for some time.

“We’ve secured funding to develop a masterplan to help us attract investment to redevelop the estate.”

“There is great enthusiasm on the valley. We want to tap into that to capture what people want for their community. So we’re asking people to get involved and tell us how they would like the estate to evolve in the future.”

Residents, businesses and schools in Gleadless Valley are being consulted on how to improve the estate, parts of which are among the most deprived in the country.

The Council will spend the month of November around the area, talking to people there. The survey can also be completed online at the Council’s website.

Residents who take part in the consultation and provide their contact details will be entered into a prize draw to win up to £50 of shopping vouchers.
