The drop-in sessions are open to anyone and will take place at the following times, dates and locations:

8th June 2022: We have updated the scheme name to make it clear that some areas of Walkley are included in the Active Neighbourhood proposals.
May 2022: We have been working our way through the comments received about the Crookes Active Neighbourhood and as a result of this we are delaying the closure on Slinn Street at the junction of Heavygate Road to review the access for larger vehicles.
Based on similar feedback we have also changed the direction of the diagonal road closure on Cobden View Road. This means that motor vehicles travelling up Cobden View Road will be able to turn left onto Springvale Road, but not right. Motor vehicles will also be able to travel down Cobden View Road turn left onto Springvale Road and right onto Western Road. The same movements can be made in the opposite direction. You can view this change on the updated Crookes Active Neighbourhood map. The Experimental Traffic Regulation Order (ETRO) will be updated and advertised in the coming weeks. Please check this webpage for the latest updates.

An Active Neighbourhood creates a safer, cleaner and quieter environment for residents and local businesses to enjoy.
Last year we asked what you thought an Active Neighbourhood in your area could look like. The link to the consultation and final report can be found here .
You told us that you wanted to see changes made in your area such as less traffic, safer streets for walking, and a nicer place to spend time outside.

The changes we put in place will be advertised through an Experimental Traffic Regulation Order (ETRO).
What is an Experimental Traffic Regulation Order?
An ETRO means that the road closures, crossings, and one-way systems we are introducing to create the Active Neighbourhood will be implemented as a trial and the opportunity to comment and provide feedback will remain open throughout the six-month period of consultation.
During the trial, changes may be considered to improve the effectiveness of the scheme for those living and working in the area.
Notice of the ETRO will be displayed on lamp posts in the area, and it will be available to view online.
Who do I contact if I want to share a concern, comment or leave feedback?
The Experimental Traffic Regulation Order (ETRO) was advertised on Thursday 14th April 2022 and came into effect on Monday 25th April 2022.

If you have any immediate questions or concerns about the scheme before any changes are put in place, you can email email@example.com or call the Connecting Sheffield team on 0808 196 5105 .
When will the changes be made?
You will start to see implementation of the scheme at the end of April 2022 with work expected to be completed in May 2022.
How long will the changes be in place?
The trial will take place for six months. After this time there will be a review of the scheme and formal decisions will be made around which elements of the trial should stay in place and which should be removed or changed. During this time the scheme will remain in place. Decisions will be based on your feedback received through the ETRO, monitoring the traffic flow changes, and the funding available.
What happens next?
Once the Active Neighbourhood is in place you can let us know what you think to the changes or report an issue through our email address firstname.lastname@example.org or call the Connecting Sheffield team on 0808 196 5105 .
During May 2022 we will also be sharing a survey with local residents and businesses to ask how you feel about the Active Neighbourhood.
Westways Primary School – School Street Trial
As part of the Crookes Active Travel Neighbourhood, Westways Primary School will be trialling School Streets.
A School Street restricts motor traffic on roads around a school during drop off and pick up times, creating a safer and more pleasant environment for parents and children travelling to and from school.
Two roads with school entrances will be closed to traffic as part of the School Street trial. These are:
• Mona Avenue which will be closed from its junction with Western Road
• Leamington Street which will be closed from its junction with Spring House Road
The School Streets will be in operation Monday to Friday during school term time, 8.15-9.15am and 2.45 – 3.45pm.
During these times no motor traffic will be allowed to enter via the closure points (emergency vehicles and other exemptions apply) but residents and existing parked cars will be able to leave. Outside these closure times, normal traffic movements will remain.
More information about the School Street will shared with parents and those living around the school before the changes are put in place. This will include details of when the School Street will begin to operate.
On-street cycle parking
We are interested in establishing a level of interest in providing secure on street cycle parking within the scheme area. The parking will be in the form of an access-controlled hangar or pod. A unit will be able to accommodate up to six bikes. We will also look to provide storage for different types of bikes.
For both types of storage there is likely to be an annual charge which would cover any ongoing costs including maintenance that is required. More detail to follow. If you are interested in communal cycle parking on your street and would like more information email email@example.com .
To help us to monitor the success of this project we may need to occasionally survey traffic in the area using cameras mounted on lamp posts. We need to do this so that we can understand how traffic has been affected by the scheme. For example on certain roads we may wish to understand whether traffic has reduced or increased as a result of the scheme.
