Carwood Estate is to get much needed improvements to its green spaces in the next 4 months.

Carwood Tenants and Residents Association have been campaigning for years for better maintenance of the estate. Now with the help of the Community Assemblies, the area’s green spaces will be mapped and systematically tidied up.

The Sheffield NEAT Team will be working to get rid of overgrown shrubs and bushes and carry out minor repairs, paving the way for easier and better maintenance in the future.

Dean Fearon, Sheffield City Council, said:

“The NEAT team employs trainees so that young people aged 16-20 can develop skills and gain further employment. The project in Carwood is really about responding to what residents want and then helping to make it happen.”

The project is fully supported by Councillor Jackie Drayton who said:

“Local councillors are putting in the money to improve the green spaces, to get them to a level where Sheffield Homes can better maintain them. We're also hoping it will help develop pride in the area so residents will want to help keep it looking good."
