A statutory public consultation on the Issues and Options document 2020 is now open and will be available until Tuesday 13 October 2020. This is the first stage of preparing the new Sheffield Plan.
It is very important that as many people as possible submit their views. There's a lot to take in. If we don't say anything now we may find developments are proposed much more easily because they're already in the plan.
The page that may cause the most concern is about the Green Belt. The devil can be in the detail so the more pairs of eyes looking through this the better; https://www.sheffield.gov.uk/.../Green%20Belt%20Review...
Here is where to complete the survey
BAG Facebook group members reacted with horror when they saw the damage to the bench we installed on the Village Green only last July. Harsh words were published and they got through to at least two of the mothers of boys involved. How many there were is open to conjecture but the two now known were probably not the worst. Both have had a roasting and one has been grounded for the rest of the holiday.
We were all young once and may have done things we really shouldn't have done, sometimes egged on in a crowd. To those who've been in contact, your children aren't really bad. Confessing was a brave thing to do. A post on the FaceBook page yesterday has drawn praise for the two who've owned up. Allegedly the main culprits were not from Low Edges but from Dore!
It's really encouraging to hear that more than one who was present when the bench was damaged has confessed. We've had offers to either repair, pay for repairs or to replace the bench. The damage is not as bad as first thought.
It does all leave us with the determination to organise a better than ever Fun Day in 2021.
July 23rd - A Population Questionnaire has been developed by Sheffield City Council Public Health Team, to understand the Impacts of Covid-19 citywide. It will run for 6 weeks. Its aim is to support our understanding of the positive and negative impacts of Covid-19 in Sheffield within our communities. Click this link to complete the questionnaire.
It asks a range of questions (mainly multiple choice) about how the experience of Covid-19 has been in terms of loneliness, mental health, employment, income, health behaviours, active travel, access to services, where people get their information from on Covid-19, digital inclusion, home schooling, people's experience of shielding or having Covid-19, information about health conditions and managing these during the pandemic, future concerns people may have about the virus.
This questionnaire is really important as it will allow Sheffield City Council’s Public Health Team to gain more information in the areas where we have gaps in data locally. We can then ensure we tailor our response and services to meet the needs described by communities.
It should take around 10-15 min to complete the questionnaire.
