Final Notice – Removal of Public Payphone: Junction of Tom Lane and Fulwood Road, S10 3GH

15 Aug

Final Notice – Removal of Public Payphone:  Junction of Tom Lane and Fulwood Road, S10 3GH

 The Council and BT have previously consulted on the proposal to remove this payphone service. The initial consultation on BTs proposals to remove the telephone service at the junction of Tom Lane and Fulwood Road, Nether Green took place from 21 May to 1 July 2019.  A further consultation was then undertaken from 8 July to 7 August 2019 on a ‘First Notification’ draft decision to object to the proposal. 

We have now issued a ‘Final Notification’ which is Sheffield City Council’s final decision to not object to the proposed removal of the service on Tom Lane and Fulwood Road. This would allow removal of the payphone equipment and enable Ant Kids Charity to pursue taking ownership of this telephone kiosk under BT’s adopt a kiosk programme.  

A copy of the final notification can be seen here. The response to the consultations can be viewed at https://sheffield.citizenspace.com/place-planning/further-consultation-on-removal-of-bt/

26 Jun

What is it all about?

Over the next few years our team at Age UK Sheffield and the team at the Lai Yin Association will be providing opportunities to build the pathway to becoming a World Health Organisation Ageing Friendly Sheffield! This is going to involve bringing local residents, communities, citywide organisations, partners, and key players together to collaborate in the design, delivery and evaluation of the project.

How we’ll do this

We’ll do this by engaging in focus groups, co-production events, mystery shopping, volunteer roles, and a city wide launch – all of which is aimed to empower people aged 50+ to have their voices heard. We’ll also be working with organisations across the city so that we can influence future strategic and political decision making.

Who can get involved?

Everyone! Whether you’re an older person, work in the city, or want to get involved to help make a difference in your community, we’d love to work with you. We want as many people to be involved as possible.

Consultation on Equality Objectives now Open

30 Oct

Sheffield Council Draft Equality Objectives 2019-2023 

By law the Council is required to set at least one Equality Objective every 4 years.  For 2019-23 we are suggesting that we set 4 objectives, each with a set of 3 more specific aims.  This will help us focus on a number of important areas so we can really make a difference.

Our proposed Equality Objectives are:

  • Strengthen knowledge and understanding of our communities
  • Ensure our workforce reflects the people that we serve
  • Lead the city in celebrating diversity and promoting inclusion
  • Breaking the cycle of inequality and improving life chances

Our Equality Objectives are very important to us as an organisation.  They guide the work we carry out in the city and demonstrate our commitment to challenging inequality and promoting a fair and inclusive Sheffield

Whether you live, work or visit the city, are an individual or an organisation, we would like to hear your views about our draft objectives for 2019-23.

Please complete our short survey, which should take 5-10 minutes. The survey will close on the 22nd November.

Thank you for taking part in our consultation.
