We would like to know what people living in Sheffield feel should be the priorities for the wards they live in.
Each year every ward in Sheffield produces a list of three or four Ward Priorities; this is your opportunity as a local resident to have your say about what they should be for your neighbourhood. The ward priorities contribute to discussions with partners on local activity so you can see from them what local councillors and partners are working towards in your area. Councillors also use the ward priorities to help them decide how they allocate ward pot money to local groups and services in the ward.
Please follow the link below to fill in the short online questionnaire; although it shouldn’t take more than about five minutes there is space to add additional comments if you want to spend more time giving a detailed response.

Have Your Say on on Children’s Surgery and Hyper Acute Stroke Services
People living in Barnsley, Bassetlaw, Chesterfield, Doncaster, Rotherham, Sheffield and Wakefield are being invited to share their thoughts on proposals to change our region’s services for:
- Children’s surgery and anaesthesia
- Hyper acute stroke, where patients are treated and given care for up to the first 72 hours after having a stroke.
Depending on where you live, some patients have better experiences and access to services than others – and doctors, nurses and healthcare experts all agreed that this shouldn’t happen – and have come together to change it.
Between Monday 3 October 2016 and Friday 20 January 2017, members of the public are invited to share their views on the proposed option for the future of these services – with a final decision expected to be made by clinical commissioners in February.
If you would like to find out more you can visit www.smybndccgs.nhs.uk or call 0114 305 4487 for more information.
SCC and partners are currently refreshing the Tobacco Control Strategy for 2017-2022. On the 31st of March 2017 all our current contracts are due to end. This provides an opportunity to review what we have in place, and consider how we can do better to support smokers in the city to stop, and children and young people not to start.
We are consulting with the public and a number of key stakeholders to understand views and opinions about the proposed new strategy.
The ‘Sheffield Tobacco Control Strategy consultation 2017- 2022’ is now open and will run until the 2nd of January 2017. As a key partner please could you take part in our consultation which can be accessed via SCC Citizen Space

Consultation on Draft Enforcement Plan
The National Planning Policy Framework (NPPF) is encouraging Councils to publish a Local Enforcement Plan; this is to ensure that planning enforcement remains clear, transparent and accountable. It sets out priorities which take into consideration local circumstances and provide certainty for all involved in the development process.
The plan sets outs how the Local Planning Authority will approach alleged cases of unauthorised development, including what and how it will it investigate and when it is appropriate to take enforcement action.
