Why We Are Consulting

Sheffield City Council has some funding from the housing development on the former Parson Cross College site to make improvements to Colley Park and to provide play facilities in the area close to the new housing. We have developed two option plans showing a range of general improvements and various options for play facilities on the site. We would very much like to get feedback from local people on these ideas as we want to make sure we are providing what the community want.

What funding is currently available?

Colley Park Improvements Funding - We have one pot of funding to do some general park improvements. The S106 legal agreement for this funding requires us to carry out some improvements to Colley Park including: removal of old playground and gym equipment; re-profiling of mound to improve site lines; drainage improvements and tree planting. These improvements are included in the options plans. We would also like to hear what other improvements you think are important for the site.

Play Facilities Funding - We have a second pot of funding, which is allocated to ‘play facilities in the catchment of the development site’, which means it should be spent in open space within 400m of the housing development. The option plans show a range of ideas which this funding could be spent on including: skate and bike park or skate bowl; climbing boulders, tarmac bike track and robust playground equipment. We would like to hear whether you think we should be investing this play money at Colley Park and what you think of these ideas.
