Have Your Say on Community Funds

15 Aug

CIL-Twitter

Overview

The Council receives a payment called a Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) for new building projects, which is then used to fund necessary improvements in infrastructure.

We are seeking views on our proposals to use the Local CIL (Neighbourhood Portion) in Sheffield to

  • promote the development of Neighbourhood Plans across the city
  • ensure that areas of higher deprivation receive a fairer overall share
  • improve how local communities are involved in the decisions on how it is spent

What we are seeking views on

We now need your views on how the Neighbourhood Portion is allocated in non-parished areas or those areas without a Neighbourhood Plan, as well as how local communities are involved in the decisions on how it is spent.

NEW PLANS FOR PARKWOOD

1 Aug

 

Sheffield City Council Press Release   

                                          Developers reveal first plans for Parkwood site

The consortium leading plans to breathe new life into Sheffield’s former ski village and the surrounding area have issued a first look at how plans may take shape.

A map showing how EXTREME Destinations’ plans for the site could look, together with a first architect visual of a new ski lodge and plans for new mountain bike trails in the first phase, have been unveiled by the team at a business briefing in Sheffield today (Wednesday)

EXTREME says it will reveal further plans later in the year together with the release of Sheffield City Council’s masterplan for the wider Parkwood Springs area, which includes Wardsend Cemetery and the former Viridor site.

Councillor Mazher Iqbal, cabinet member for business and investment at Sheffield City Council, asid: “It’s great to see EXTREME’s plans talking shape after many months of hard work by themselves and the council to get to this point.

“These plans show the huge potential of the former ski village site as a major destination and large visitor attraction. It shows how EXTREME can carry out a phased delivery plan which brings the ski village back into use alongside many other outdoor pursuits. And it also shows how the rest of the site can be developed with the potential for lodges, hotels and other accommodation.”

Chris Lewis, from EXTREME, said: “Our discussions to date have shown the very real potential of this site. We have had many interesting discussions about bringing adventure sports to Parkwood. We are developing a bid for Sheffield City Region funding and having highly positive discussions to bring our plans closer to reality.”

At Wednesday’s business briefing at the Royal Victoria Hotel, council chief executive John Mothersole and director of city growth Edward Highfield also spoke about the plans for the site.

Last November, Sheffield City Council appointed a consortium led by adventure sports and TV station EXTREME Destinations as the preferred developer to deliver a 48-acre sports, leisure and entertainment solution at Parkwood, following a competitive bidding process.

An initial 100 new full-time jobs are expected to result from the £22.5million development which should see the reinstatement of Sheffield’s much-loved ski slopes in phase one of the project.

It is hoped that as development makes progress, EXTREME’s unique five-star destination experience will incorporate a combination of action and adventure sports facilities, including the possibility of an indoor sky diving facility live music, E-Gaming and Virtual reality hub as well as a restaurants, bars, social spaces, retail and themed accommodation.

The agreement between Sheffield City Council and EXTREME Destinations, in partnership with leading UK facilities operator Continuum Attractions, will see the development, provision and operation of a world class sports and leisure ‘experience’ complex with exciting and modern facilities for residents, tourists and action sports enthusiasts alike, located in the area of the old ski slope site and surrounding land at Parkwood Springs.

The company has more than 120 sporting ambassadors, including many skiers and snowboarders who trained at the ski village – such as snowboarder Jamie Nicholls.

Sheffield City Council seeks residents views on its budget

16 Jan

The final council budget for the year 2018/19 will be agreed in March but there is still time for local people to have their say on how money should be spent and share their ideas on how savings can be made.

The ‘Budget Conversation’, which started last month with the launch of an online survey, is now going on the road and local people are invited to attend public meetings to share their opinions and give advice to the people who will be making the decisions, Cabinet Members from Sheffield City Council.

Councillor Olivia Blake, Deputy Leader and Cabinet Member for Finance said: “We are living in a difficult economic climate. There is more demand for our services but less money to spend.

“Between 2011/12 and 2017/18 we have had to save £390 million. Over the same period we have seen our grant funding reduced by 45%. For the coming year we have to find further savings of £30 million because of the austerity measures forced upon us by central government.

“At the moment our plans include increasing the council tax by at least 52 pence per week, for most households, to pay for social care, as 95% of councils have already done. But even this additional funding will not be enough to meet the demand.

“If anyone has an idea or an opinion on how we can make further savings we want to hear from them. Equally we want to know what people think of the services we already provide, and tell us what they think the priorities for the future should be”.

Anyone who wishes to get involved in the challenge of setting the budget can complete a survey at, www.sheffield.gov.uk/budget or attend a public meeting on the follow dates.
