Sheffield garden plans to go ahead

Planting beds and a water feature will comprise part of a new revamp of Tudor Square in Sheffield.

Following the confirmation of £4 million of government funding, the square is set to be redesigned with features including granite paving and better lighting, the Sheffield Telegraph reports.

Proposals by the council include the paving of the grass in the centre of the square to enable spotlights, raised planters and sculptured seating.

Three large oak trees will also be planted, although alder trees already there will not remain.

Altogether, the facelift will cost £4.125 million and will be funded by development firm Yorkshire Forward.

At a planning meeting today (Monday), it will be decided whether the plans, said to be supported by most of the local population, are to go ahead.
