12/06/2024 - Clough Dike, Deepcar: Culvert Repair / Replacement ref: 3978    Recommendations Approved

Decision Maker: Transport, Regeneration and Climate Policy Committee

Made at meeting: 12/06/2024 - Transport, Regeneration and Climate Policy Committee

Decision published: 14/06/2024

Effective from: 12/06/2024

Decision:

7.1

A failed culvert in Sheffield City Council ownership on Clough Dike in Deepcar has been presenting a significant risk of flooding for some years and requiring ongoing and reactive operations to prevent a repeat of the flooding of 9 homes in November 2019. The temporary arrangements, although having avoided a repeat of the property flooding, are expensive, circa £80k per year, and at high risk of failure. October 2023’s Storm Babet came very close to a repeat of property flooding.

 

 

7.2

A bid for £1,390,163 of FCERM GiA and £112,000 of Local Levy to the Environment Agency to fully fund the project has been successful and the Council are able to progress to a permanent fix of the failed asset.

 

 

7.3

RESOLVED UNANIMOUSLY: That the Transport, Regeneration and Climate Policy Committee notes the successes set out in this report and supports the progression of the project into delivery.

 

 

7.4

Reasons for Decision

 

 

7.4.1

As well as the strong economic case for this, now fully funded, permanent repair the wider risks associated with the current arrangement already laid out in this report further support the need for change.

 

 

7.4.2

The removal of our ongoing revenue liability for the flood mitigation and the significant reduction in flood risk to people and property further recommends the need for this work.

 

 

7.5

Alternatives Considered and Rejected

 

 

7.5.1

A copy of the Outline Business Case as submitted to the Environment Agency is available on request. The short-listed options appraisal considered 2 possible methods of culvert repair which were both shown

to be cost beneficial over continuing the current arrangements.

 

 

7.5.2

Full details of the proposed works are available on request. The works will consist of caisson excavation of the blockage and remediation of the remaining culvert using ultraviolet cured in place pipe lining techniques (UV CIPP). The section of collapsed culvert will then be replaced allowing the entire concrete section of culvert to be remediated using a UV cure in place liner.

 


12/06/2024 - Devonshire Quarter: Regeneration Update ref: 3979    Recommendations Approved

Decision Maker: Transport, Regeneration and Climate Policy Committee

Made at meeting: 12/06/2024 - Transport, Regeneration and Climate Policy Committee

Decision published: 14/06/2024

Effective from: 12/06/2024

Decision:

8.1

The Milton St neighbourhood, as identified within the City Centre Strategic Vision, is emerging as a new residential area within the wider Devonshire Quarter. This report provides an update on ongoing regeneration schemes within the area and seeks a steer on a proposed land disposal strategy to ensure a balanced mix of housing. It also considers proposals from the owners of the Grade II* Listed Beehive Works to bring that building back into use as a mixed-use commercial hub at the heart of the neighbourhood.

 

 

8.2

RESOLVED UNANIMOUSLY: That the Transport, Regeneration and Climate Policy Committee:-

 

1.     notes the progress with housing development shown in the update report at Appendix A,

 

2.     notes the future land disposal strategy outlined in Appendix B to ensure a balanced mix of housing within the Milton St neighbourhood; and

 

3.     notes the proposals outlined for Beehive Works at Appendix C and supports the continued work of Council officers with the owners and other partners, including Historic England, to develop a viable business plan to bring the buildings back into commercial use.

 

 

8.3

Reasons for Decision

 

 

8.3.1

Focussing the Council’s future land disposal strategy on achieving a more balanced residential offer aligns with the guiding principles for regeneration in this area as set out in the Priority Neighbourhood Frameworks, which envisage a mixed demographic in the Milton St neighbourhood. The guiding principles emphasise the importance of retaining the former industrial feel – celebrating the historic assets – and the proposed rejuvenation of Beehive Works as a commercial building, including maker spaces, would enhance the sense of place and preserve a historic identity for the emerging neighbourhood.

 

 

8.4

Alternatives Considered and Rejected

 

 

8.4.1

Rather than balancing the residential offer within the neighbourhood, the Council could focus its disposal strategy – in term of land use and phasing – on maximising capital receipts. However, this may not make the same contribution towards delivering the City Goals, Council Plan or City Centre Strategic Vision.
