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 onchange.org requesting that the Sheffield City Council remove these temporary changes as soon as possible.
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.
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.
Tomorrow is going to be a lovely hot day!! PLEASE behave sensibly when visiting our local reservoirs, rivers and beauty spots.
It may be tempting to have a swim in open water but this is not only dangerous, it is also prohibited.
South Yorkshire Police are working with Yorkshire Water and will be out on patrol tomorrow and over the weekend advising people of the By Laws and rules of Yorkshire Water to members of the public who wish to enjoy the beautiful scenery where we live.
Have a lovely day, please be respectful of the By Laws
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
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.
