Sold out

This month we see a defeat for those campaigning for social housing on Woodside. At the same time developments around the Wicker and Corporation Street continue the build of luxury flats, leisure facilities, supermarkets and work places. All that is missing are luxury family homes for those working in the emerging business quarter.

Now that all the plans are revealed, a Woodside full of luxury homes fits into the schemes very well. Was this the plan all along?

In Burngreave, and further afield, it’s essential that we all unite to demand more housing that people in Burngreave can afford, to ensure that the less well off are not pushed away from a redeveloped city centre, while competing with each other for dwindling council housing stock.
