Big Local

Westfield Estate

Save area

Westfield Estate Big Local area is located 8 miles south east of Sheffield city centre. The estate was built in the 1970s and is home to around 4,000 people. In the centre is a small bank of shops, a medical centre, Shortbrook Primary School and a community centre which was converted from a pub in 2010. There are good transport links to Sheffield, Rotherham and Chesterfield.

Through the Big Local programme, Westfield Estate has been awarded £1 million to spend over the next 10 years to improve the area. All local residents will have a say in what to spend it on and how to get involved. Our website will tell you what's happened so far, what's coming up and how you can play a part in making our community even better.
