Now there’s no going back ...

Demolition is well underway of the demolition of Don Valley Stadium - the most high profile symbol of the council’s financial pressures.

The site is being cleared as the authority begins another round of budget cuts. Don Valley closed controversially last September to save £700,000 a year.

Athletics has been moved to nearby Woodbourn Road, renamed Sheffield Hallam University City Athletics Stadium.

No decisions have been taken on the future of the stadium land, but ideas being worked upon include a national sports medicine centre, a second university technical college for the city and a school.
