As of January, we have been formally recognised as a Neighbourhood Planning Forum by the Sheffield City Council! Three cheers for all those who were instrumental in making this happen.
During 2015 the main work of BBEST will be carried out by Groups working on the 5 key themes identified during the consultations:
- Active Travel
- Green & Open spaces
- Central Retail district
- Sustainable & Balanced community
- Architecture & Conservation
Quite a lot of information has been gathered in the last year to support the work of these groups. It is particularly worth having a look at the green space plan and the tree survey work by ECUS which has just been uploaded to the Green & Open Space page. This will be discussed at an upcoming meeting soon. Stay tuned for announcement of dates.
The work of all the groups will be presented at Forum Planning and Consultation meetings throughout the year, followed by consultation of the first draft of the Plan at the AGM and Planning forum Development Session scheduled for November 7th 2015.
Please have a look at the working group pages on this website and get involved in any way you can to support a bright future for the BBEST area.
