  1. I've just had the lib dem pamphlet through the door. I didn't realise that all council decisions since March have been made by 1 person due to the council invoking emergency measures. Amongst other things they are giving 16 million pounds back to central Government in unspent business support schemes that could have gone to local causes like other councils have done, Sheffield Council Tax payers have also bailed out Scarborough Leisure facilities (run by SCT), and £33,000 was wasted on the Shalesmoor bike lane scheme that was implemented and then taken up when it caused chaos. Speechless
  2. I always park on Herries Rd, if you can't get a spot above the entrance then there's always space on the road opposite the ambulance entrance just above where Sheffield Windows used to be.
  3. Just had a Lib Dem leaflet through my door that states the council are imposing £70 fines for people queuing at their tips with a picture of the Shirecliffe site on the front. How long have they been doing this and is it all tips?
  4. It was a Police pursuit apparently, stolen car around Fox Hill and then Loxley
  5. Great, common sense prevails (possibly a term never heard in Sheffield Council chambers). I was dreading my return to work in the future as I use Shalesmoor daily.
  6. It's for a channel 5 documentary about the Dambusters according to the Star.
  7. ha ha I see Planner 1 hasn't got involved in this yet! Penistone Road cycle track into town is largely ignored by cyclists as they still tend to use the road rather than the cycle track. And what about the wasted thousands when they introduced the cycle track down near Costco narrowing the road and removing parking for the workers in the area. In the time it's been done I don't think I'm up to double figures yet with the cyclists I've seen that use it (I'm also a cyclist myself and advocate cycle lanes where possible and more importantly useful).
  8. Inner Ring Road Improvements - Status Update Amey commenced their final surfacing programme on Monday 9th March, 2020 and this will last for a period of up to 6 weeks. The surfacing will take place on weekdays between 19:00 and 06:30 and Sundays between 07:00 and 19:00 which reflects the many restrictions that have been put in place during the construction of this project. The first half of the period will concentrate in the Northern half of the project area and generally between Chatham Street and Savile Street before then continuing within the main Corporation Street section. Subject to any delays associated with staff resources on site arising from COVID-19, and normal caveats about weather conditions being favourable, the final surfacing should be completed by the end of April, 2020. The scheme will at that point be substantially complete. I hope this assists in responding to your constituent on this matter Best regards Tom Tom Finnegan-Smith Head of Strategic Transport, Sustainability and Infrastructure City Growth Sheffield City Council
  9. Well I would say Stannington and Lodge Moor are amongst the highest areas of Sheffield. Stannington is 650 feet above sea level.
  10. And has anyone seen any gritters yet? Certainly no sign of them at Stannington this morning and the Star seem to have posted that the they haven't bothered gritting! Council seem to be inept at anything to do with transport in this city unless it involves putting in useless cycle paths in places they're not required just to meet targets! (eg the one outside Costco)
  11. Plenty of people on the Stannington Facebook page happy with them. Don't know whre you live but if you're in S6 try joing the Stannington FB page
  12. The route has stayed pretty much the same other than where Old Penistone Rd diverts past the Toyota dealer and rejoins at the traffic lights near Hillfoot Bridge and also a couple of places towards Shalesmoor where you can see bits of the old road. It's basically the buildings that have changed and obviously the dual carriageway
  13. There's a post somewhere that a planning application has been submitted for a natural burial ground on High Riggs so not the Quaker burial ground but somewhere nearby.
