Sheffield - Multi-Million Pound Jobs Boost Plans

Recommended Posts

http://www.thestar.co.uk/news/business/multi_million_pound_jobs_boost_plans_1_3473736

A JOBS bonanza could be on the cards for Sheffield’s Lower Don Valley after a £24 million scheme was unveiled to turn a huge former steelworks site into an industrial estate.

Developers Wilson Bowden and Marshall Group have announced plans to buy the disused 19.6 hectare Outokumpu site, on Shepcote Lane, off junction 34 of the M1 motorway at Tinsley, from the steel company.

They predict the development could create as many as 1,450 jobs.

Some 150 jobs would be directly created by the development, with a further 1,300 created indirectly.

So on the direct number of jobs created that works out at £160k a job.

Not sure whether some of the 1300 jobs will be for the construction of it or whether the other 1300 will be created making sandwiches for the 150 jobs?

Also what's not stated is how many jobs where lost at the steelworks which is now going to have 150 jobs to replace them.

Another point is will the 150 "new" jobs actually be 150 jobs moved from another site without subsidy?

Shirley that 1300 must be a guesstimate of the number who could be employed by businesses operating in the new premises. Based presumably on full occupancy.

What jobs and what businesses are going to want to set up shop in what is essentially an economic dead zone?

There are a lot of shops and businesses there already.

In the mid-80s that whole area looked like the end of the world had arrived, I remember seeing it from the train and being shocked at the desolation.

However, it's changed out of all recognition since then.

This is what Shepcote Lane looks like now.

Shepcote Lane is very close to the Sheffield Arena, Don Valley stadium, Valley Centrertainment, Meadowhall retail park and Meadowhall itself. Plus it's not too far from the tram links.
