Population Questionnaire to understand Impacts of Covid19 – Citywide (will run for 6 weeks)

22 Jul

Public Health have developed a population level questionnaire to support our understanding of the positive and negative impacts of Covid19 in Sheffield within our communities. The survey will run for 6 weeks.

Click link below to complete the questionnaire

https://sheffield.citizenspace.com/performance-research/coronavirus-rapid-health-impact-assessment

This questionnaire asks a range of questions (mainly multiple choice) about how the experience of Covid19 has been in terms of loneliness, mental health, employment, income, health behaviours, active travel, access to services, where people get their information from  on covdi19, digital inclusion, home schooling, people’s experience of shielding or having Covid19, information about health conditions and managing these during the pandemic, future concerns people may have about the virus.

This questionnaire is really important as it will allow us to gain more information in the areas where we have gaps in data locally. We can then ensure we tailor our response and services to meet the needs described by communities.

It should take around 10-15 min to complete the questionnaire.

If you have any further questions or comments please contact Sarah Hepworth below

Thanks for taking time out to complete the questionnaire

South West Covid Survey Opened 13 Jul 2020 & Closes 14 Aug 2020

Overview

In the past few months Sheffield City Council has deployed extra resources to help communities during the Coronavirus pandemic.

We are now considering how we continue to meet people’s needs, particularly with access to support and information in the coming months, to manage the ongoing effects of the pandemic.

This pilot survey is for residents of South West Sheffield (wards of Crookes & Crosspool, Fulwood, Ecclesall, Dore & Totley). If you live in one of these wards we invite you to take a few minutes to share your experiences regarding Coronavirus support. We will use your answers to inform and shape how we communicate with and support the residents of the South West of Sheffield further as we continue to navigate Covid-19 and recovery.

Road Resurfacing Work – Manchester Road & Rivelin Valley Road

23 Jul

Dear Resident/Business
Road Resurfacing Work – Manchester Road & Rivelin Valley Road
As part of the Streets Ahead highway works we will soon be resurfacing some sections of the following roads;
• Manchester Road – Sheffield/Derbyshire boundary to Rivelin Valley Road.
• Manchester Road – junction of Rivelin Valley Road to Hagg Lane.
• Rivelin Valley Road – junction of Manchester Road to Holme Lane.
Work will take place in late July on Manchester Road (from Sheffield/Derbyshire boundary to Rivelin Valley Road), and work on the remaining section of Manchester Road and Rivelin Valley Road will take place in early to mid-August. Work will take place between the hours of 8pm and 5am, Monday – Friday only.
The work has been scheduled to take place at night to minimise disruption in the area. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause and any noise you may experience.
Please note this work will be completed under a road closure and there will be no on-street parking on the section of road that we are resurfacing during working hours. Vehicles left on-street may be towed away and you will need to pay a fee to have your vehicle released.
Temporary road signs will be displayed ten days before work starts confirming the dates and duration of works, and parking restriction signs will be displayed five days before.
Parking and access arrangements
Access to properties on the roads we are working on may be limited during working hours. On-street parking will be as normal at other times. Please let our on-site supervisor know if you need vehicle access to your property for urgent reasons. Pedestrian access and access for emergency vehicles will be available at all times.
If you are away during the period in which the works are scheduled to take place, please avoid parking your car on the road. Our work schedule is heavily dependent on the weather and can be affected by unforeseen circumstances so it may be necessary to change the start date at short notice. To ensure we deliver our programme to schedule, we will need to tow cars that are delaying our works.

Bus service and bin collection changes
Changes to your regular bus service or diversion routes will be publicised by South Yorkshire Passenger Transport (SYPTE). Please check your local bus stop or http://www.travelsouthyorkshire.com for any route changes. You can also call Traveline on 01709 515151 or follow @TravelSYorks on Twitter.
If there are any changes to your bin collection days these will be communicated by Veolia at http://www.veolia.co.uk/sheffield or on Twitter @Recycle4Shef. Call 0114 273 4567 between 8am and 6pm for more information.

Road Safety
• Be patient and take extra care during road works.
• Make sure to allow extra time for your journey.
• Stick to the designated diversion routes and always drive within the speed limit.

Bogus Callers

If you are approached by someone claiming to be from Amey, the Council or connected to the Streets Ahead programme offering to resurface your drive please do not hand over any money. If possible take the callers details, including their vehicle registration number and we will inform the Police. All Streets Ahead and Amey employees carry identity cards. If you have any doubts about the identity of a person claiming to work for Streets Ahead please call customer services.
Further information
Please follow us on Twitter @sccstreetsahead #SASouthW for further information and updates about local works.
If you would like to discuss any issues, please contact us on 0114 273 4567 or email streetsahead@sheffield.gov.uk
Thank you
We appreciate that any disruption can be frustrating and thank you for your understanding whilst these important works are completed.
Kind regards
Streets Ahead
