Yeah agree was at the meeting looks like a done deal to me. The 2 councilors where like Muppets never had any input. Don't think they realise what it will be like 40000 people getting to Hillsborough and the parking problems it will cause for the residents.

Hi Chris,

You were sat just behind me, it's going to happen, so best make sure those (working) groups do get organised and make it work at local level, I personally want to see that the park, as well as local businesses benefit from any revenue made by Sheffield Council hosting the event in Hillsborough.

If it's going to impact the area, during the event then the area should have something to show for it after its finished, some parts of the park could do with new equipment for locals to use, such as the playground could be improved.

The park has had 10,000 people attending owls before, and I dare say go back a number of years and records would show much larger events.

The two tramlines representatives, seemed good natured and approachable.

Yeah hope they ask me to go on the working group. We should have asked how much the council where charging them to use our park. Do think some flyers & posters should have published this meeting so more local people would have known about it! But they have ticked the box.
Will be thinking long and hard at the next local elections because she did just tick a box.

Two of the three local councillors were there. Did you ask them anything?

i think the councillors will be very aware of the issues as they live in the area also there is a football team that brings in nearly 25000 every other week and nearly 30000 on big occasions if anything it will be easier as the crowds wont all descend and leave at the same time.
regarding traffic i would lthink more people would use public transport as most will want a drink or two it doesnt seem to be an issue in town/ponderosa in the past

Anybody travelling there has as much right to park there as the residents.

c. 25000+ people travel to hillsborough every other week without issue.

It's just moaning nimbyism.

Have to agree with all this. How many people actually drive to Tramlines? Everyone I know who goes (which I appreciate is anecdotal evidence) uses public transport and/or taxis. As for the part about the difficulties of getting thousands of people to Hillsborough, that is just laughable...what sort of thought process is going on to actually type that down and expect people to take it seriously.

I AirBNB in the area occasionally and there's never any parking during Tramlines.

Anyone who drives during Tramlines is either teetotal or drink driving.

None of this makes any sense.

All those events don't occur at the same time do they?

Rainy summers???? Drugs!!!!

Stop moaning about nothing.

Haven't you just put an advert up elsewhere on the forum for a pyrotechnic event in greenhill?

A handful of people should not be able to have the deciding vote on an event for thousands of people.

Its time that we stop pandering to the minority in this country. A handful of nimbys always seem to ruin it for everyone else.

As you are an Organiser of the Lowedges Festival, the above sounds a wee bit green eyed, maybe you should raise those points with the police, organisers and council?

With that level of criticism of the festival goers, how do you cope organising such events?

Small pockets of disruption happen all the time, with or without anything special happening, it's called life it works itself out.

if, buts and maybes, just isn't a realist argument against it being in Hillsborough.

Meersbrook park?! Ever been? It's a massive hill! Couldn't even have a game of five a side football there!

Love this post - 'many over the drink drive limit' 'drugs' 'a rainy summer' 'MADNESS' - come off it!

Absolute hysteria. How about attending an event, and seeing what it's like? It's not the inner circle of hell you believe it is. And it might not even be a 'rainy summer'!

Anyway- it's happening by the looks of it. Good for the area, good for the park, good for people to use a park they might not otherwise visit, good for local traders - heck, even good for local people that don't seem to exist in a world of fear. I'd love it if I lived near Hillsborough park- I'd take the opportunity to have a good weekend, right on my doorstep.

I honestly think some people want Sheffield to be a ghost town, devoid of all culture or anything that might make people that don't live here, you know, want to visit.

its just too many events in one area,it saturates the area and the land,trust me it will be a disaster,to far from the other parts of the same event,too far from rail links,and if its a wet summer the land wont stand event after event on the same area,titanic comes to mind with this idea.nothing wrong with tramlines just it needs to be central to the city
western park might be good if theres a space/area for it.or Norfolk park.

The Titanic comes to mind? Why?!

Western Park?! Have you actually visited these parks? We're talking about a major even here- not a couple of tents and an ice cream van!

I don't think I will trust you that it will be a disaster. You seem terrified the event will bring drink driving, drugs, and.....icebergs!

I think the main point of Hillsborough is the tram connection.

Norfolk Park would be another great option but its a long walk up Granville Road.

Too far from rail links - there's a door to door tram from the train station.

Stop making up reasons.

reading the Sheffield star and no one is denying it this event losses 300,000 each year who pays that bill,the whole lot is madness, do the scc pay this bill,why cant they run this event like all the other events including lowedges with at least a break even figure,
it should be run by a company that has business sense,fair enough the council could pay a bit,but its worse than the titanic at least that had value and was insured.
