Feedback Required on City Centre Traffic Issues

22nd August 2016

Recently the Council gave an update to the Chamber Transport Forum around the preliminary traffic plans for the city centre as it updates its master plan for the area.

There are obviously many issues to balance but it is important we try and achieve the optimum outcome for business and the city. The Council is aware that there are some concerns amongst businesses regarding traffic restrictions (for example, one way streets, or bus gates) in the city centre and would like a better understanding of those concerns. Please would businesses who either operate in the city centre or regularly visit it feedback directly to the Council at Nat.Porter@sheffield.gov.uk. (please copy to Peter Kennan, Chair of the Chamber Transport Forum, at pjk@hawsons.co.uk). How far do you feel traffic restrictions impede business in the City Centre? Please provide detail as to what business activities are hindered (for example, deliveries), and what the nature of the hindrance is (for example, having to make long detours). If there are any specific locations, please include detail of this in your response. This is a one off opportunity to get your issues into the planning and we urge you to take the time to reply. Peter Kennan Partner - Hawsons Chair - Sheffield Chamber Transport Forum
