Sheffield CBD

Sheffield is in South Yorkshire towards the north of EnglandSheffield's CBD was declining because there were lots of shops, but they were all spread apart. Also there was a lot of traffic, nothing that made it special and there wasnt very much to do.

CBD management

To help Sheffield's CBD many things were done. Firstly to add attraction to Sheffield, the Peace and Winter gardens were built. Secondly to solve the shopping problem, Meadowhall was created and to this day is the 9th largest shopping centre in the UK. The traffic problem was saved by the park and ride which meant that people could park outsideof the CBD and take the tram to anywhere they wanted in the CBD. Finally the Tramlines festival is held every year in the Peace garden to give people something to do in the CBD.
