Street City Night Food Festival has been operating at the ex-commercial site at 863 Ecclesall Road since its inception in October 2016. The event has been a huge success for the local community, bringing together groups of all ages across the local area. The event has never caused any trouble or undue stresses the the local infrastructure, being completely contained.
Street City management since January 2017 have been working to solidify the events existence by applying for a full premises licence and planning permission to continue to operate on a monthly basis, as well as to hold one off events (such as wedding receptions). To be clear it has never been the intention for Street City to operate a a venue/bar 7 days a week.
Since October last year there has been 2 prolific individuals who complain about the event based on noise issues each time. This is remarkable as they do not live directly next to the site. To date there has been no complaints from households who border directly onto the site of Street City.
Street City feels that Sheffield City Council have not been willing to work with the organizers in a clear and direct manner to allow this hugely popular event the get the clarity it needs to continue to operate. At times the information provided by the council has been conflicting, muddled and incompetent.
The organizers are asking for the support of people that love and attend Street City, local businesses, partners, groups and interested individuals to sign this petition to show their support by backing Street City in their up and coming applications with Sheffield City Council.
Enough is enough; Sheffield City Council have proven themselves time and time again that they are not pro business and listen to the voices of the few, not the many!
