The home of Hallam FC and Hallam Cricket Club has been granted protected status.

Sandygate stadium in Crosspool is now an asset of community value, meaning that if the owners ever want to sell the ground, they would have to inform the local authority and give a community group six months to raise the money to purchase it.

In 2015 The Plough pub opposite Sandygate was designated an asset of community value.
