The new Leader of Sheffield City Council is calling on all Sheffield political parties to work collaboratively to serve the people of Sheffield, and deliver a better, brighter future for the city.

At the first Full Council meeting of his new leadership, Councillor Tom Hunt will table a motion that celebrates some of the hugely positive recent developments in our city and new developments that will help to improve the lives of people in Sheffield.

Tom Hunt, Labour Leader of Sheffield City Council said:

“Sheffield is changing for the better and there is a lot to be positive about. It’s time to talk our city up – not talk it down.

“The fantastic new proposals for Cole Brothers will breathe new life back into a much-loved building. Across the city centre, new buildings are going up, hoardings are coming down and there is more to come. The next 12 months will be exciting with major improvements to Fargate, alongside new developments at Castlegate and West Bar and the ongoing progress with the Heart of the City scheme. The city centre is on the up.

“There is more good news with an agreement for 1000 new low-carbon homes in Attercliffe, the creation of the civil service Policy Campus in Sheffield and investment of over £100m in the city’s leisure and entertainment venues.

“We are also working to support the people in Sheffield through tough times. Helping people with the ongoing cost-of-living crisis is a top priority. We have launched new Family Hubs to give young people the best start in life, as well as a new 5-year programme with The Royal Foundation to tackle homelessness. It was great to host Prince William in Burngreave as he launched the new Homewards programme which has Sheffield right at its heart.

”Within the Council we are putting people at the heart of everything we do with a fresh culture founded on trust and openness, with greater connection to our communities, where staff are engaged and where equality and diversity are celebrated.
