Our community and regeneration

Our new investment in the Sheffield city centre campus will provide significant improvements to a major gateway to the city centre, high quality facilities for our students and staff, and a new green space for all to enjoy. We will also strengthen our support for charities and community groups - who provided crucial support across our region during the pandemic - by making our campus and facilities available for them to use.

The Covid pandemic has had a huge impact on our city and town centres, requiring radically new approaches to how places serve their communities. We will use our research and public policy expertise to support the region’s local authorities as they adapt to these changes. 

Commitments

Deliver phase one of our campus master plan, significantly improving Sheffield city centre and providing a new green space. 

Construction begins in early 2022 and is due for completion in late 2023. We will collaborate with Sheffield City Council on wider efforts to support the growth and rejuvenation of the city centre.

Support local authorities by using our specialist research and policy expertise to help revitalise town and city centres.

We will continue to work with local authorities to help develop and evaluate the policies and programmes that aim to revitalise our communities.

Provide free or at-cost access to our facilities for regional community and voluntary groups.

Local voluntary organisations and charities are the lifeblood of our communities, and we work closely with many such groups. We will further strengthen this relationship by creating an online resource enabling the use of our facilities and campus spaces.
