How you can help Save Mount Pleasant
HEADLINE INFO and STATS for the ‘Heart of Sharrow’ scheme
Thank you so much for all of your ongoing support to Save Mount Pleasant and build the Heart of Sharrow.
Despite the officers recommendation to Cabinet to dispose of Mt. Pleasant to a care home provider we continuing to fight for the site, the first step of which is getting the decision successfully ‘Called in’ for Scrutiny.
PRESS RELEASE in response to the Councils announcement
Avenues to Zero is a social enterprise, connected to and supported at the grassroots level by local residents, groups, initiatives and organisations. The project is supported by and has been worked on with some of the city’s biggest and most well-respected companies, and has secured full funding for the scheme. In addition to the following economic and social benefits AtoZ has made an offer to Sheffield City Council to buy the property/site for £500,000.
It is incredibly hard to understand the motivations behind this announcement and why officers are making this recommendation to Cabinet.
The purpose of this tender for the sale / 'disposal' of Mount Pleasant was to select a preferred developer to work with to ensure the best use of this vital community and heritage asset, and we do not see how a Care Home for private profit over our 'for the community' scheme can be justified. Especially when Avenues to Zero 'Heart of Sharrow' project has such widespread support from: local residents, the surrounding community and other initiatives in the area, not to mention an incredible delivery team, experienced advisors, Councillors and Cabinet members!
