Consultation on plans to vary street lighting levels opens

17 Sep

Sheffield residents are being asked to give their views on a proposal to vary the street lighting levels across Sheffield, following the start of a trial in three areas of the city.

The proposals, which support the recently launched Climate Emergency plans, encourage approaches in support of a lower carbon economy, greater resilience to climate change and cleaner growth.

From Monday 19 August until Friday 13 September, street lighting levels in Crosspool, Endcliffe and Meersbrook will be reduced on a trial basis.

During this period, street lights will switch on responsively at 80% instead of the current 84% before midnight and reduce from 54% to 40% at midnight until 6am.

Lighting levels will be adjusted when footfall and traffic is at its lowest and the council will continue to work with South Yorkshire Police, and other stakeholders, to assess and evaluate any impact on communities.

If implemented city-wide, as well as achieving a 380 tonne annual reduction in Co2 emissions, the changes will also see a number of other environmental benefits including minimising the negative effects on residents’ sleep patterns, certain nocturnal animals, plant species and people’s enjoyment of the night sky.

Importantly, the lighting levels will remain in line with the current standards, providing adequate levels of lighting on the highway.

The consultation will close on Sunday 22 September when the views of those in the pilot areas will be assessed alongside the views from respondents across the city.

The city-wide consultation can be found here.

More information about the proposal, including a link to a briefing report and associated maps of the trial areas, can be found at: www.sheffield.gov.uk/streetlights

Grant Aid Review – Public Consultation

22 Aug

Grant Aid is the name of our grant giving to the Voluntary Sector in Sheffield. The main purpose of Grant Aid is to invest in the voluntary and community sector so that they can help the Council and partners tackle the inequalities that exist across the city.

The existing 3-year Grant Aid Strategy (2017-2020) ends in March 2020.  We are consulting with current grant recipients, the wider voluntary and community sector and the public to review existing Grant Aid arrangements and welcome your feedback using our online consultation.

https://sheffield.citizenspace.com/communities-business-strategy/grant-aid-review-public-consultation

The consultation will remain open until Sunday 15 September 2019.

Whilst it has been decided to review the existing Grant Aid arrangements, there have been no decisions made on the specific priorities, eligibility criteria or application process for the new Council grant aid fund from April 2020. The results of the survey will inform our plans for the future of Grant Aid.
