Objections to cladding by Sheffield City Council
We the undersigned petition Sheffield City Council to reconsider the proposal to spend approx. pound;13 million of tax payers' money on poorly designed sub-standard cladding on maisonettes on the Hanover and Landsdowne Estates, while cutting maintenance services and leaving broken pipes, leaking gutters, blocked rubbish chutes, poor cleaning and other repairs undone. The proposed cost to leaseholders, who bought their maisonettes through the Right To Buy scheme, is pound;13,000 per home and will force people into poverty and debt. We ask Sheffield City Council to re-evaluate the actual benefits and reasonable costs to taxpayers and leaseholders of this scheme, and to consider the real needs of the tenants and residents, the high profile city centre location and the unique opportunity to make a showpiece for the city, through effective consultation and capped costs.
