How are different types of front garden surfaces contributing to a flood risk?
Jessica, a Sheffield Hallam University student, is currently doing research for a postgraduate degree. Her research focuses on the different types of front garden surfaces across Sheffield, and how these may have an impact on flood risk.
To help with her research, Jessica has designed a survey and would like to get as many responses as possible from the residents in the Crosspool area.
The Survey is anonymous and will take a maximum of 5 minutes to complete.
As well as bringing more awareness of the flood risk in Sheffield for local residents, If this research is successful, it may provide a better picture for policy makers and planning authorities.
An update from Amey, which came via our councillors, on flash flooding in Crosspool:
Further to concerns over Cardoness Road, Barholm Road and Dransfield Road from recent flash flooding we would like to confirm that our design engineers have been working hard to investigate and find a remedy for this issue.
Unfortunately this isnt a quick fix and we need to ensure that the correct resolution is found for this issue to avoid any recurrence in the future.
We are meeting with our contractor this week to discuss further and will keep you updated with our intentions moving forward.
Several Crosspool roads will be gritted this winter following the results of a public consultation into winter road maintenance.
Council chiefs have changed their mind on the gritting of 141 roads. Local streets including Hagg Hill, Coldwell Lane, Stephen Hill, Watt Lane, Back Lane and Bole Hill Road will now be included on gritting routes.
