The Sheffield Plan: Our City, Our Future - Citywide Options for Growth to 2034 (November 2015)

Closed 1 Dec 2022

Opened 4 Jun 2016


This is an example consultation for demonstration purposes only. This site is operated by Delib Ltd and submitted responses will be discarded.

We are now seeking comments on The Sheffield Plan: Our City, Our Future - Citywide Options for Growth to 2034.

This consultation is open to everyone who would like to comment on the future growth of Sheffield - whether you are a resident, a business, a community group, a worker or someone who invests in the city.

The Sheffield Plan will be the statutory development plan for the city which will:

  • Guide new development (including housing, economic development, community & leisure facilities, transport infrastructure)
  • Help protect the environment (including countryside, open space, wildlife sites)
  • Provide the basis for deciding planning applications
  • Identify and reserve land for development
  • Support economic growth and provide certainty for developers

We currently have an adopted Core Strategy (2009) and saved policies from the Sheffield Unitary Development Plan (1998), but are working towards the creation of a new Plan for the City called the ‘Sheffield Plan’ which we are intending to adopt in 2018. 

The Sheffield Plan is our chance to shape the future of the city.  It will guide the city’s growth by setting out how and where new development will take place, and is a long term strategy that will last until 2034.  The Plan will cover the whole of Sheffield, except those parts that fall within the Peak District National Park.
