Bannerdale School Site

Bannerdale School site
Most people anywhere near Carter Knowle Road will already be well aware that work has started to prepare the site for the new school. Piles are being driven into the ground in the area which was formerly a waste tip on top of which a solid platform will be constructed to act as the base for the new school. 
There is still some anxiety about the release of gases from the site once the building is completed although assurances have been given that these have been addressed. 
 
Our friends in the Carter Knowle & Millhouses Community Group are keeping the closest eye on this development. If you have any observations or comments or questions about it, please contact them directly by emailing the Secretary, Mike Hodson, on: mikehodson26@gmail.com
 
To see how extensive the works are a video has been put online showing aerial views of the site. It can be found at: https://vimeo.com/231522916

Vehicle Idling Consultation
Posted by in
Vehicle Idling Consultation
New guidance from health experts at the National Institute of Health and Care Excellence (NICE) suggests that those who are very sensitive to harm from air pollution should be protected from the effects of air pollution.
This may include the creation and/or enforcement of byelaws asking people to switch their engine off, for example, when dropping off and picking up children outside schools. This is called “no vehicle idling” and could extend to a number of locations across the city and a number of vehicles including private vehicles, buses including school buses, taxis, public service vehicles and private fleets.
Since July 2017, traffic marshals in Westminster City Council have issued on-the-spot fines for those idling in “no idling” zones.
The Highway Code (Rule 123) already advises that drivers must not leave a stationary vehicle’s engine running unnecessarily on a public road.  If a vehicle is likely to remain stationary for more than a couple of minutes, drivers should apply the parking brake and switch off the engine to reduce vehicle emissions and noise pollution.
However, if Sheffield City Council were to undertake enforcement and issue fines we would need to progress a local byelaw.
This consultation asks your views on whether Sheffield City Council should introduce and enforce new byelaws as suggested by NICE for “no vehicle idling” outside Sheffield schools, hospitals, care homes and other locations within Sheffield. This consultation also asks whether educational or enforcement approaches (fines) should be used.
There will be further public consultation events where you can give more detailed comments, and you can give comments on air quality at any time by e-mailing: airquality@sheffield.gov.uk
