Bring back the passenger train

Stocksbridge’s roads are congested and our car parks are full. Getting to Sheffield for work or for leisure or getting people from Sheffield to Stocksbridge is a huge challenge – bus, car or bike. We desperately need better transport and for years we’ve heard that the Don Valley line was an option – we need […]

New Community Arts Hub

Our town has a fantastic tradition for encouraging music across the community as demonstrated by business and audience involvement in the successful Valley Music Festival. To further support and develop our young musicians and performers it is now clear that the town needs a technically advanced and versatile performing arts space with the flexibility to […]

Performing Arts HUB

At present the performing arts produce about 4-5% of GDP. There are many jobs available especially in the technical areas of performance and events and it likely that there will be a skill supply shortage as a result of reduced opportunities for arts education We are a locally based not for profit performing arts organisation […]

A good performance space

Either a complete overhaul of ‘The Venue’ performance facilities or creation of a new centrally-located space where the massive talent of our choirs, drama groups and individuals can be nurtured and enjoyed by audiences and participants alike. There is sufficient expertise already in the valley to develop an ‘Academy’ for music and drama and it […]

Stocksbridge

A supertram link would be the best thing that could happen to this town and 25m would go someway to providing it. At present from the far end of Stocksbridge it takes 30minutes by car in to the city centre of Sheffield, by bus it takes over an hour and they run hourly. The high […]

Rail link to sheffield

There is an existing rail line that could be upgraded for passenger transport. This would make travel to the city centre easier. Encourage people to visit Stockbridge and the surrounding countryside. Deliver on climate targets and reduce the sense of Stockbridge being apart from the rest of the city

Better Transport

Better transport links to Sheffield/ Barnsley would be great, not only for people to get into Sheffield but to attract more visitors to Stocksbridge. At the moment it takes over an hour to get in to Sheffield despite it only being a 30 minute drive. I think a shuttle bus that goes directly to Sheffield […]

Link stocksbridge to Sheffield’s Supertram network but continuing it from the interchange at Hillsborough

Bring the tram train to Stocksbridge. This would bring more people to Fox Valley on public transport and cut travel times to Sheffield

Tramlink

Trams all the way to fox valley cutting out 100s of buses a week plus bus link to other towns more regular like holmfirth link little areas like crow edge etc. Cut down car issues with better transport links. Local shops with better access and more support. Leisure time better facility’s ie the pool.

Putting Pride in the Parade

I would like to see new life breathed back in to the parade that make it the heart of Manchester Road. Subsidies for empty units to encourage small entrepenours to take up shop. Possible pedestrianisation of the area to create central town sqaure where markets, craft fairs and street food events could take place. Create […]

Extension of the Tram Line

Replace the existing SL1A route with an extended tram line (potentially using the old railway infrastructure next to fox valley)- connecting the town to the city in a more cohesive and accessible manner than is currently operating. Later service would also be appreciated.

Improved rail links

Improved rail links with Sheffield city centre- the tracks are already in place- with stops at Fox Valley, Deepcar, Wharncliffe, Oughtibridge and the new large estate. A train tram would be perfect!

Arts and Culture

The town has a thriving arts and culture sector which could be developed to enhance health, well being and the economy. There are several arts organisations ready and willing to develop a plan for a performance space, to encourage new and emerging artists, to train actors and singers, to create a centre of the community […]

Main road shopping precinct

Complete refurb of the High Street. It is an eyesore. Run down buildings, poor quality units. No reason to visit causing decreasing footfall leading to further deterioration. Terrible first impression for anyone driving through/visiting. Road is a bottleneck. Deliveries/ buses cause gridlock. Create wider road/bu/delivery layby to prevent congestion at bus stops by taking some […]

Upgrade Town Centre

Our town centre needs to be massively upgraded before it dies completely. Shops on the parade are an eyesore and parking is totally inadequate. We need to breathe life back into this town. We have a strong supportive community and we don’t want to lose this by people drifting away to find better facilities. A […]

Bike park Sheffield, greno woods

We have an awesome set of woods on our back door, known world wide for it’s bike trails but it could be hugely improved and improve our little town at the same time. So essentially i’d like to build a cafe, visitors centre, bike shop (move trek there) etc in the area at the end […]

Cricket facilities

Cricket club facilities need to be improved, the last time i visited the roof was leaking and mouldy and the club help out loads of people in the community. Taken kids there and they’ve had a great time, just the club doesn’t have the funding to restore the pavilion

Transport to Stocksbridge

Utilising the existing trainline to improve connection to Sheffield centre. As more new build, (which should include a significant percentage of social housing), grows along the Stocksbridge to Middlewood corridor, the additional car traffic will too. An alternative public transport link is vital. Buses will not be able to cope alone, the current road is […]

health and well being

We have a fantastic medial centre in the town but have a long journey into Sheffield to access ancillary care. How wonderful would it be to use other facilities,such as the leisure centre to provide more holistic care? With no direct bus service to any hospital, I can attest to the difficulties faced when, after […]

Rail link to Sheffield centre

A train service along the Don valley railway to Sheffield centre. Currently transport link to Sheffield are poor, over a hour to the city centre means most locals drive, increasing traffic on the roads and accelerating the erosion on a poorly maintained road network. A train service would relieve the pressure on the road network […]

Better public transport

Here in Stocksbridge, the biggest issue is the lack of frequent, reliable, direct public transport to Sheffield. We have the supertram link and the 57 bus, however it is not enough. The supertram link is good but if the tram doesnt arrive at Middlewood at a similar time to the bus, passengers are left waiting. […]

Roads and parking

1. Make some roads one way (many could be amended). Put double yellow down one side of all roads to stop the idiotic and inconsiderate parking, especially on corners. Will make driving safer! Main Village precinct was very badly designed and needs widening, as too many near misses daily there! Serious accident waiting to happen. […]

Train link

Public transport is dire from here. Train link needs to be done so connected to Hillsborough… or maybe even totally new route to Chapeltown (not sure if possible or viable, so please do not shoot me!), as only short journey to Meadowhall or town centre from there! We are getting more and more houses built […]

Train station

A train station is heavily needed to connect Stocksbridge to either huddersfield or Sheffield train station. Bus/ tram services to get to the nearest train station takes over an hour to reach

Main village centre

Fox Valley has ruined main shopping village bit now and it was very badly designed when done. It needs to be widened, as dangerous driving there, especially for buses. Parking needs to be disabled only and one for deliveries. Make it so businesses have to adhere to one unloading at a time or face fines! […]

Public transport connections

We need better transport links, especially to Barnsley. A train route that utilizes the existing train line would be amazing . Furthermore a direct tram connection to stocksbridge would I’m prove the connectivity and allow people from other areas to access stocksbridge, and improve the local economy.

Transport and Trade

The high street has died since the opening of Fox Valley, extend Sheffields tram link to Stocksbridge – invest in renovating the high street and get some independent traders in – we could make Stocksbridge the Hebden Bridge of South Yorkshire.

Cinema

Cinema. There used to be one there years a go and think with the popularity of Stocksbridge increasing a cinema is something that everyone of all ages would enjoy and bring in further people to the town as there isn’t one local to the area.

Get the planned tram train link to Sheffield city centre built. The sense of isolation would reduced, more business could locate here but you can’t get to the place

Evening Bus Services

After 9pm there is only one bus per hour. This is the SL1 service from Middlewood. It should be every 30 minutes minimum. It isn’t fair as people can come off a tram and be waiting up to 48 minutes for a bus. On Friday/Saturday evenings, this bus can become extremely crowded. When there are […]
