It is with great sadness that Councillor Peter Rippon passed away on Sunday 20th December.
Peter was elected to Council on the 1st May 2003 representing the Shiregreen & Brightside Ward and later went on to represent the Richmond Ward. He was Co-Chair of Planning for the last 5 years and sat on numerous Scrutiny Committees during his years of service. He was also the Labour Group Whip. Peter also served as the 118th Lord Mayor of Sheffield in 2014-2015.
Peter was a very kind and thoughtful man who touched so many people’s lives in so many different ways. He worked tirelessly to ensure Sheffield was a great place to live for everyone, and was dedicated to improving the lives of his constituents and the citizens of Sheffield. He was very passionate about his city and worked consistently to raise its profile and the recognition it deserved.
Peter will always be highly thought of and missed very much by all his colleagues and friends on Sheffield City Council.
