Re: Greater Sheffield......

Derbyshire will have to move the border fence if the proposed change happens.

I spend on average 20 seconds in Derbyshire every time I drive home from my Daughter's and I'll miss it.

Re: Greater Sheffield......

Wikipedia says that Chesterfield is the biggest town in Derbyshire?
Population = 103,800
It also says that Derby has a population for the city of 248,700 and 1,543,000 in the wider "metro area".
I didn't realise Chesterfield was such a tiny place - good riddance to it.

The Government has now passed a new law which means district or borough councils can become full members of combined authorities outside their county boundaries.

I'm proposing that Matlock could move to just outside London as this would make it more convenient to visit my family.

Re: Greater Sheffield......

So Sheffield is getting a Chesterfield? Sounds like a comfortable deal, I'm sure it'll sit well... Grin

Re: Greater Sheffield......

The first thing the "Sheffield City Region" after it is taken over by Chesterfield, would be to apply for Central Government Funding to straighten the spire on the grounds of Health and Safety.

No worse than london starting off as a little village, then expanding to the size of the M25 ring road engulfing the towns and villages that surrounded it...  Grin

Re: Greater Sheffield......

The Greater Sheffield may have some of Nottinghamshire too, as many people in this area (Worksop) head to Sheffield as the main city rather than Nottingham.

Re: Greater Sheffield......

I live very near the South Yorkshire / Derbyshire border.
There is very little difference in the distance between my house and either Sheffield city centre or Chesterfield.
When we moved here some neighbours referred to Chesterfield when they said they were going to town.
Others were meaning Sheffield.
Both have a 'Sheffield' postcode.

Re: Greater Sheffield......

Once I nearly lived in area!
My take is that the old counties, though I wouldn't want to lose them,  do not sit well with modern life, work opportunities or communications. Provided there is no big-brotherism, then I see little to worry about!
No one has to agree with my opinion, but in the time I have left a miracle would be nice.
