BT – Consultation on Proposed Public Payphone Removals.

29 Sep

BT has already put a notice on the following payphones in your area.

• Haggstones Road/Worrall, S35 0PB
• Church Street/Langsett Road South, S35 0GY
• Cockshutts Lane, S35 0FX
• Brightholmee Lane/Wharncliffe Side, S35 0DD
• Wharncliffe Arms/Main Road, S35 0DN
• Bessemer Terrace/Manchester Road, S36 1DY
• Beechwood Road/Lilac Ave, S36 1DD
• Melbourne Road, S36 1EF
• Shay House Lane/Victoria Road, S36 1FW
• Carr Road/Deepcar, S36 2PR
• Worrall Road/High Green, S35 3LL
• Town End Road/Stocks Hill, S35 9YT

BT proposes to remove the payphone (the phone box and the equipment) because the phone has had very little use over a significant period of time.  The Council are collating views on the removal of the payphone equipment.

If anyone wishes to comment or object to this proposal, please write to Sheffield City Council as the local planning authority (either to any contact details given on the payphone notice; or direct to Forward & Area Planning Team, Sheffield City Council, Howden House, 1 Union Street, Sheffield, S1 2SH; or The deadline is 27th October.

The local planning authority will then consider the comments, alongside other prescribed factors and will publish in draft whether they will be consenting or objecting to the proposal on that basis. If at this stage the Council is consenting to the equipment being removed, local communities still have the opportunity to adopt a traditional red  ‘heritage’ phone box and make them an asset that local people can enjoy.  It’s simple to do directly with BT and costs just £1.

Have your say on the future of Supertram

20 Sep

South Yorkshire Passenger Transport Executive (SYPTE), on behalf of Sheffield City Region (SCR), will be undertaking a consultation on the Future of Supertram between Monday 19 September and Sunday 30 October.

The Consultation

The consultation will ask residents, groups and businesses across Sheffield City Region what they think about the Supertram now, what they would change or improve, and how it could fit with other transport.

Consultation feedback will help transport leaders draft an investment strategy that will seek Government funding to prepare Supertram for the future, and allow services to operate for another 30 years.

How people can take part

 People can have their say on the future of Supertram by completing a short consultation online at or by collecting a form from an Interchange Customer Service desk.  There is a separate consultation form for community groups/organisations.

Road Resurfacing to recommence in Stocksbridge

19 Sep

Road resurfacing in the Stocksbridge area will recommence Monday 3rd October.
This work will take approximately 8 weeks to complete and roads will need to close to do the work safely. A schedule of works is included at the end of this letter providing more information. Hours of work will be 7.00am – 7.00pm, Monday to Friday only, unless stated otherwise on the schedule.
Please note there will be no on-street parking on the roads that we are resurfacing – vehicles left on-street may be towed away and you will need to pay a fee to have your vehicle released.
If you are away during the period in which the works are scheduled to take place please avoid parking your car on the road. Our work schedule is heavily dependent on the weather and can be affected by unforeseen circumstances so it may be necessary to change the start date at short notice. We will tow cars that are delaying our works.
Temporary road signs will also be displayed five days before work starts, confirming the dates of work and parking restrictions.
Please note that diversion routes will be in place where needed. Pedestrian access and access for emergency vehicles will be available at all times.
Parking and access arrangements
There will be no on-street parking or access to properties on the roads we are working on, during working hours. Most roads will be open and on-street parking will be as normal at other times.
