“Sheffield City Council, Amey and STAG have completed two days of constructive, mediated talks, chaired by the Bishop of Sheffield, the Very Reverend Dr Pete Wilcox, and have made substantive progress over that time.

“We have agreed to meet again in three weeks to continue our talks.

“Both parties are hopeful that we will be able to make a full announcement at that point, covering a proposed approach to completing the remaining period of the Streets Ahead programme, alongside developing our street tree strategy for the future.

“In the meantime the current pause on tree replacement will continue.”

The Council’s delegation includes elected members, council officers and representatives from Amey. The delegation from STAG will include members of the steering committee and a representative of Trees for Cities.
The talks are being conducted by the Centre for Effective Dispute Resolution, CEDR, and overseen by the Bishop of Sheffield, the Very Reverend Dr Pete Wilcox.
