Streets Ahead Pavement Resurfacing – Middlewood Tavern to Langsett Avenue

25 Nov

AMEY

Pavement Resurfacing, Middlewood Road A6102 – from Middlewood Tavern to Langsett Avenue
We are due to start pavement resurfacing work on Middlewood Road from Middlewood Tavern to Langsett Avenue on Monday 30 November for a period of 3 weeks. We will need to narrow the road to one lane and use traffic lights in order to carry out the work safely. As the work is a 2 stage process, the road will only need to be narrowed / have traffic management in place in sections on certain days over the 3 week period.
Our working hours will be between 8.30am to 3.30pm Monday to Friday only. Temporary road signs will be displayed five days before work starts, stating the dates of work and parking restrictions on your road.
Parking and access arrangements
There will be no on-street parking or vehicle access to properties on the roads we are working on, during working hours. Most roads will be open and on-street parking will be as normal at other times. Please let our on-site supervisor know if you need vehicle access to your property for urgent reasons. Pedestrian access and access for emergency vehicles will be available at all times.
Vehicles left on-street during restrictions may be towed away and you will need to pay a fee to have your vehicle released.
Please note that the schedule is heavily dependent on the weather and can be affected by unforeseen circumstances. Temporary road signs will be updated to reflect any changes.
We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause. For the latest updates please visit http://www.sheffield.gov.uk/penistoneroadworks or follow on Twitter @sccstreetsahead #SAA15

Sheffield Online Consultations – Have your say !

25 Nov

There are a number of consultations that have just launched on Citizen Space that you may be interested in. 

  1. Budget Consultation

As in previous years, we want you, and as many other people and organisations as possible, to have the opportunity to help shape how we meet this latest budget challenge.

The Council website has information about our current budget, where funding comes from, and what we spend. If you want to get into more detail, our open data pages include our Budget Implementation Plans for 2013/14 to 2015/16.

You can also watch The Budget 2016/17 video.

Please take a few minutes to complete our online survey. Your views are very important to us and will feed into the discussions that will take place ahead of the budget being approved in March 2016.

  1. Public Health Review

The Council is undertaking a review of the city’s approach to improving public health in Sheffield and its relationship with inequalities. As part of this we will look at our priorities for public health in the city, and the interventions we currently make to improve outcomes, identify the things we wish to improve, and develop a strategy setting out how we will do this by 2020. This will also look at how we invest our resources for maximum impact.

We want to hear the views of as many people and organisations as possible, so please forward this on to others who you think may be interested.

Please go to the Sheffield Public Health Review Citizen Space page to find out more and to give us your views.

  1. Sheffield Plan

We are now seeking comments on The Sheffield Plan: Our City, Our Future – Citywide Options for Growth to 2034. This consultation is open to everyone who would like to comment on the future growth of Sheffield – whether you are a resident, a business, a community group, a worker or someone who invests in the city.

Please go to the Sheffield Plan Citizen Space page to find our more and to give us your views.

Through Citizen Space you can also take part in other consultations that interest you and sign up for alerts on a wide range of topics, including ones for the Equality Hub Network.
