The Future of Sheffield

Sheffield Future

Sheffield was a world leader in steelwork during the Industrial Revolution, but suffered the decline of manufacturing and industry in line with the rest of the nation.

Reacting quicker than most however, Sheffield avoided the more dramatic slumps found elsewhere and grew to become one of the economic powerhouses in the region.

The local constituency has invested heavily in redevelopment during the 21st century and has seen a 60% increase in the city’s value; to average £9.2 billion in 2007. This positive growth continues to move forwards, with Sheffield moving at around 5% annually which is a leader amongst the Yorkshire and Humber areas.
