The closure will remain in place 24/7 until Sunday 25th October, or earlier completion of all works

Temporary Road Changes Petition

Broomhill parking bay closure.

As a result of the temporary closure of the parking bays in the Broomhill shopping precinct and the potential devastating effect the new pedestrian arrangements and loss of short stay parking will have on local trade, Williamson Hardware has posted a petition on change.org requesting that the Sheffield City Council remove these temporary changes as soon as possible.

Broomhill Temporary Road Changes

To give pedestrians more space for social distancing, The Sheffield City Council has temporarily closed the angled parking bays in the Broomhill shopping precinct, on Fulwood Road.

The footways on Glossop Road, between Fulwood Road and Peel Street and between Peel Street and the end of the pavement opposite Westbourne Road, have also been temporarily extended by 1.5metres, to give additional footway space

As these measures are only intended to be a temporary social distancing measure, the Sheffield City Council would welcome your feedback on them.

If they work well, and local businesses and residents are happy with the changes, the council have suggested that they may possibly consider, if they work well for everyone and after a full consultation process with local businesses and residents, look at making these changes permanent.

Broomhill Temporary Changes to Roads and Foot-ways

Keeping people safe and socially distanced

To enable pedestrians to maintain the correct social distance between themselves and others, the council will be making temporary changes to the road and footway layout on Fulwood Road and Glossop Road in Broomhill. This will provide additional space on the pavement for pedestrians as they access local amenities.

The parking area outside Morrisions, Sainsbury’s etc will also be temporarily pedestrianised to allow more space for people to maintain social distancing. This means that the parking bays will be temporarily suspended. The area will remain open for two disabled parking bays, with the addition of two further disabled bays on Spooner Road and Taptonville Road.

Alternative parking is available very close by. This includes the car park above the shops/businesses on Fulwood Road (accessed via Spooner Road) and in Spooner Road Car Park.

The footways on Glossop Road, between Fulwood Road and Peel Street and between Peel Street and the end of the pavement opposite Westbourne Road, will be temporarily extended by 1.5metres to give additional footway space

Timescales

Monday 3 August – 2 new disabled bays will be marked out on Taptonville Road and Spooner Road. This will be operational by or before 8 August.

Sunday 9 August – Footpath widening on Glossop Road will commence. This will be operational by or before 16 August.

Monday 17 August – Parking bays on Fulwood Road will be closed. Fencing will be erected to prevent access to the work area. Access to the shops will be retained with no disruption.

Monday 24 August – Working arrangements will require access to the footway in front of the shops and there will be some disruption. Access arrangements will be worked up in more detail once on site.

Saturday 29 August – Works complete.

Temporary changes to Roads and Footways

Flower Planters Removed

Flower planters removed from Broomhill shopping centre to make way for ‘social distancing’

Broomhill shopping centre

The community of Broomhill were confused and flabbergasted to find that their lovely floral display planters, regularly tended by local residents, has been removed and replaced with squares of Tarmac.   

Apparently, the Planters in the Broomhill shopping Centre had been moved to help create more space for pedestrians to safely social distance and as part of the council’s work to create safe active travel routes around the city.

Councillor Bob Johnson, Cabinet Member for Transport and Sustainability at Sheffield City Council, explains why the planters have been moved:

“As we move into the next phase of lockdown and people start to move around their communities more frequently, it is essential that we create the space needed to allow safe social distancing.

“Fulwood Road was identified as one location where extra space could be created to give people an alternative route to the row of shops, which could become congested. “In the first stage of works to create a footpath, planters blocking this pedestrian route have been temporarily moved to Division Street, where they will form part of the road closure in place to encourage active travel in the city centre. The parking meter and sign on the same footpath will also be moved so that the path is unobstructed.

“As the initial temporary road closure measures on Division Street are upgraded, the planters will be reinstated into Broomhill Centre ensuring that space for social distancing can be maintained.”
