Improvements to Catherine Street Open Space

Work will be starting in August to deliver improvement to Catherine Street Open Space in Burngreave which is the green space bordered by Catherine Street and Somerset Road.

Representatives from local organisations, including Burngreave Tenants and Residents Association and Arches Housing have been working together with Local Councillors and Sheffield City Council to plan improvements to the site. Catherine Street Open Space currently suffers from antisocial behaviour and fly-tipping. The works planned aim to transform it into a green space that the local community can enjoy.

Burngreave TARA carried out local consultation to ask for feedback about the site which showed that the local community supports the redevelopment of the site.

The first phase of improvements aims to tackle the current site issues and is due to start in August 2015. Works will include:

*Clearance of overgrown shrubs, vegetation and self-set trees

*Removal of rubbish and fly-tipping

*Removal of redundant tarmac areas, steps and walls

*Re-landscaping of site to improve visibility and usability

*Boundary fencing

Once phase one is complete, further consultation will be carried out locally to determine priorities for the remainder of the funding allocated, with a view to delivering a further phase of improvements in early 2016.

All improvements are being funded by S106 (Planning gain) monies from nearby housing developments.
