Area Panel Environment Meeting
Everyone in Burngreave will be able to recycle paper and card by
using the a new Citywide kerbside collection that is starting this
year. This is some of the good news we heard at last month’s
Area Panel meeting on the Environment.
Information was displayed about what’s happening about Burngreave’s
roads, green spaces and street cleaning. People talked one-to-one
with workers from the Council and Sheffield Wildlife Trust about
what else needed to happen.
Rachel Wileman of Sheffield First for Environment told us about
the draft Sheffield Environment Strategy that will help protect
and improve our City and surrounding countryside. We also heard
from Joice Richards about New Deal’s environmental projects
for this year and then Nick Hetherington and Philip Horton updated
us the Council’s work to clean and improve the safety of our
People at the meeting felt that street cleaning needed to improve
and to stop people dropping litter and dumping there needs to be
education. People said they liked the Area Panel’s ‘Bring
Out Your Rubbish’ days and that there should be more of these.
Unfortunately the daffodils planted by local people at the entrance
to Parkwood Springs Open Space were all pulled up in a senseless
act of vandalism. Good news is that the following day the new sign
provided by the Area Panel was installed.
