Sheffield City Council

Sheffield is the UK’s leading destination for people seeking outdoor adventure, city culture and rural escapes. Sheffield City Council is working with partners at a local, regional, national and international level to realise bold ambitions for our city. The Herd of Sheffield is another great example of how Local Authorities, businesses, charities and organisations can pool their skills and resources to create a city which is truly amazing.

Our work with local partners to brand Sheffield as The Outdoor City has been a huge success, (www.theoutdoorcity.co.uk); using Sheffield’s unique blend of countryside, sporting and urban activities to attract businesses, visitors and investment.

The city centre skyline is crammed with cranes again, as massive regeneration takes place from The Moor, to Castlegate and Sheffield Retail Quarter. The city centre vision is one where people can live, work, shop and socialise, before heading out climbing in the magnificent Peak District on our doorstep.

Office space uptake and employment in Sheffield is the best it’s been in years as more and businesses decide to relocate, and grow in a city which offers a huge talent pool, great value accommodation and a much higher quality of life for staff than many other cities. Our economic growth arm, Creative Sheffield, (www.welcometosheffield.co.uk) has been assisting rapid growth in the creative and digital, advanced manufacturing, education and retail sectors.

Sheffield City Council supports a huge calendar of events, community projects and business initiatives. For more information please see www.sheffieldnewsroom.co.uk
