Sheffield’s £2m Economic Recovery Fund to Help Businesses is now open for applicants

29 Mar

The city’s economy is under huge strain, particularly those sectors hardest hit by Covid-19 trading restrictions. While there may be pent-up demand, many customers will be anxious about returning to retail and hospitality as the economy reopens.

As part of the Council’s response to Covid-19, £2 million has been set aside to create an Economic Recovery Fund. This will support the city centre, district centres and local centres to reopen and get back on their feet. This is a core aim of the Council’s Business Recovery Plan.

How we will use the fund

We want to work collaboratively with businesses and partners across the city on new, creative projects. The projects should meet at least one of the following objectives:

  • to support local economic recovery
  • to help businesses open safely and remain viable
  • to protect jobs and businesses, particularly in hardest hit sectors
  • to promote consumer confidence and encourage people to spend in local, independent businesses

Proposals to change how we let social housing in Sheffield

We are looking at making some changes to the way we let Sheffield’s social housing, to better meet the needs of our customers and the demand in our city.

The proposed changes include:
• A separate register for adapted properties, specifically let to people with a mobility or medical need
• Affordability assessments on everyone offered social housing
• Only allowing those with a local connection to Sheffield to join the Housing Register
• Giving greater priority to people who need to move urgently
• Increasing the time tenants are unable to re-join the Housing Register for after taking a tenancy
These proposals could bring about some important changes to the way we let our social housing. Make sure you have your say and let us know what you think.
