Sheffield City Council have secured funding for their levelling-up plans for Castlegate, a place that used to be home to Sheffield Castle which is now currently an abandoned and derelict area. 

By going to a public consultation this allows the public to have their say on how they want the area to be developed. 

Council plans aim for construction to start in summer 2023 and for the development to be completed by spring 2024.

Carolyn Butterworth from the School of Architecture at the University of Sheffield, Director of Live Works and member of the Castlegate Partnership, said: “Castlegate is a fascinating place. It may appear rundown and neglected, but it is rich in historical and social history and home to a developing culture of independent music, ecology, skateboarding, art, and food.”

The council are encouraging feedback from the public on their concept plan.
