The catchmentBroomhill currently has a serious shortage of open space according to the Sheffield Unitary Development Plan. There are about 3500 people living in the catchment area of the Experimental Gardens, many of them in flats with no outside space, or in terraced or shared houses with very tiny back yards. The diagram shows all of the residential addresses that lie within five minutes walk (400m) of the site. Within this zone there is currently only 0.1 Ha of public open space.
