Regeneration of Gleadless Valley

A £515,000 masterplan will be developed to help regenerate Gleadless Valley, after a successful council funding bid.

Sheffield City Council bid for the extra money from the Government to develop plans to improve the estate, built in the 1950s and 1960s, and once hailed for its design and quality.

The work will focus on improving the quality of the estate, improving public spaces and encouraging regeneration of the whole area. The masterplan will be developed in consultation with local residents, community groups and other partners.

Councillor Jayne Dunn, cabinet member for housing at Sheffield City Council, said: “Gleadless Valley has a strong community and it’s an area people care passionately about. But it’s true to say that the area is in need of investment.

“We always knew this work would be needed but this extra funding means the planning can start much sooner than we’d otherwise been able to. It’s about improving the quality of housing and bringing in other improvements to benefit Gleadless Valley and everyone living there.”

There are 2,600 council homes on the Gleadless Valley estate, with some small areas of owner-occupied properties. 38% are houses, 36% are flats and 26% are maisonettes.

Sally Dale, chair of the Gleadless Valley tenants and residents association, said: “This is wonderful news for the Gleadless Valley community. We look forward to working with the council and local community to develop plans to improve our estate.”

Sheffield City Council will develop a consultation and engagement plan and will shortly start to publicise how people can get involved. The authority is already considering developing an older person’s supported living scheme at the top end of Gleadless Valley.

The Government funding is part of the Department of Communities and Local Government, and the Homes and Communities Agency’s ‘Estate Regeneration Fund’.
