Central Area Strategy

We are developing a Central Area Strategy that will form part of the Local Plan. It will provide a fresh perspective on how we can make the City Centre a more attractive place to live, work and spend time in. 

We would like to hear your views on what it’s like to live, work and spend time in Sheffield City Centre. In particular, we want to know why people have chosen to live in the city centre and what would need to change to make it a location of choice for more people. 

The survey will be live from 26 February to 23:59 on 26 March 2020.

The survey is part of an informal engagement programme to help our consultants prepare the Strategy. The Strategy will then inform the Local Plan which will guide development in the whole of the city until 2038.  A version of the Local Plan called ‘Issues and Options’ is due to be fully consulted upon in summer 2020. After that, the final draft of the Local Plan will be due for consultation in 2021.

Local Agents Forum

The forum provides a useful arena to allow customers to give direct feedback to the Planning Service and help with its programme of continuous improvement.  Meetings take place as and when required and usually when a significant change in service, such as policy changes, merits it.

To get involved with the local agents' forums please contact us.
