Priorities & Plans

Dan Jarvis was elected Mayor of the Sheffield City Region in May 2018. Read his 101 manifesto commitments here.

In his first year in office, working with the Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP) and our local councils, millions of pounds were invested in communities across our region, in projects such as the Glassworks in Barnsley; the Century Business Park in Rotherham; Parkwood Ski Village in Sheffield; and Doncaster Sheffield Airport.

Priorities for the Mayor have included transport and active travel, growing our region’s economy, and devolution.

South Yorkshire now has a transport strategy that aligns with a pan-northern transport strategy; the Mayor has launched a major bus review, which will consult with residents, businesses and operators to look at how our bus services can better serve our communities; and Britain’s most successful female Paralympian, Dame Sarah Storey, has been appointed as our Active Travel Commissioner.

The Sheffield City Region is also developing new partnerships; through initiatives such as a homelessness summit, a Music Board and a Youth Combined Authority. Much has been done – and there’s lots more to do
