The Sheffield Waterways Strategy provides a strategic holistic vision for waterways in Sheffield, UK and is accompanied by an action plan with short, medium and long term options which enhance and build on existing successful projects. The Strategy, which was published in 2014, outlines a vision that Sheffield's waterways and river corridors will be the defining features of a modern, competitive, sustainable and attractive city by 2022 which is rich in wildlife, provides a better quality of life for its residents, workers and visitors and contributes to climate change adaptation. The Strategy includes eight goals relating to people, economic opportunity, climate change, promotion, heritage, access, stewardship and wildlife. The strategy integrates a range of joined-up measures (governance, infrastructure, design, activity, strategy, and policy) to coordinate capacity-building with communities and includes lasting cross-sector actions at multiple levels, enabling impacts to be scaled up.
