The original BBEST ‘designation’ was for 5 years, to January 2020. In common with other Forums, it has taken BBEST longer than intended to prepare the Plan and send the documentation to Sheffield City Council. This means that we need to apply for ‘redesignation’ for another five years. This process is underway, and this is to let you know that the Council will be consulting on this in the coming weeks, from week commencing 28 October 2019. If you’d like to respond to the consultation, keep an eye on the Council’s consultation page, or watch this space for the link to the consultation when it’s available.
