Public Questions and Petitions

To receive any questions or petitions from members of the public



Members of the public raised questions as follows:-




Kevin Leah




Please could I and other volunteer litter pickers at the Ponderosa, discuss the plans for improvement and investment of the Ponderosa Park, Upperthorpe, with the Committee, at its next meeting to be held on 17th March 2020.  The volunteers would like to discuss the ongoing work following the 2018 public consultation.




The Chair stated that the Committee would discuss the request and a response would be sent to Mr Leah.




Brian Holmshaw




I would like to ask, with reference to the proposals regarding the Station/Sheaf Valley, as part of the presentation to be made at this meeting, whether the dual carriageway that was shown as being on previous versions of the illustration, was still there?  It was between Park Hill and the Station, and if built, would further isolate the communities beyond the tram tracks at this point.




Edward Highfield (Director of City Growth) stated that proposals for this area were included as part of the HS2 Masterplan, and reference would be made briefly to such plans as part of the presentation at this meeting.  Mr Highfield added that a report was due to be submitted to the Cabinet, at a meeting to be held in March 2020, seeking endorsement to the Masterplan.
