Labour councillors have today committed the council to working up a series of options to improve parking around Rother Valley Park, following concerns from local residents.
But just as importantly, we want to ensure that the opinions and ideas from residents form the basis of any new plans.
As such a public meeting is being held for local residents about traffic and parking around Rother Valley and what changes they would like to see.
Statement from – Julie Gledhill and Councillor Chris Rosling-Josephs (Beighton Labour Party):
“We are concerned about the impact excess traffic is causing around the park. “There is no quick fix to the issue – for instance more double yellow lines could just lead to more people parking on the Meadowgate Estate – which no one wants to see.
“But we have tasked Sheffield City Council to work up different options. Crucially, we want to ensure that the voices of residents are being heard, and to listen to the ideas that they have.
“As such Beighton Labour Party is hosting a public event for residents to hear what they think. The Council’s Cabinet Member for Transport has agreed to attend and the responses at this meeting will directly affect the next course of action.
“In the meantime, we are also working with the police to flag up traffic offences, and last Saturday action was taken against those causing offence around Rother Valley Way and the roundabout”.
The meeting will be held virtually on 11th February at 2pm.
