Today we have written to Jack Scott (cabinet member for transport), Tom Finnegan-Smith (head of Strategic Transport and Infrastructure) and Steve Wilson (the Sheffield Council cycle champion) about the lack of cycle infrastructure around the Ikea store. The provision of this infrastructure was one of the conditions for planning approval for the store.
Dear Jack, Tom and Steve,
I am writing to you on behalf of CycleSheffield regarding the Sheffield Ikea store.
One of Sheffield Council’s conditions for planning approval for the store was cycling infrastructure improvements along Sheffield Road and Attercliffe Common to create a cycle route between Vulcan Road and Arena Square.
These improvements have not been implemented, neither have any designs been submitted for these improvements. These are clearly now well overdue.
Please can you ensure these improvements are delivered in full as soon as possible and keep CycleSheffield updated with the progress on this issue.
For reference I have attached the decision notice in full with the relevant sections highlighted yellow.
