Planning Permission for Phone Mast Refused

CDYST Sports Field

A proposal for the erection of a 20m high phone mast and associated ancillary works on the Crosspool District Youth Sports Trust Sports Field, Coldwell Lane, Sheffield, S10 5TJ has been refused.
Yesterday, 17th January the Local Planning Authority REFUSED the Approval for the above-mentioned development.
The Local Planning Authority considered that owing to the siting, height, detailing, and bulk of the proposed mast and associated equipment, the development represented an overly prominent and obtrusive feature which would be out of scale and character with the open space area in which it was to be sited. Consequently, the proposal would have been harmful to the visual amenities of the locality and contrary to Unitary Development Plan Policies, the Core Strategy Policy, and National Planning Policy Framework.

Despite the Local Planning Authority wishing to work with the applicant in a positive and proactive manner, the application was considered contrary to policy requirements, and, there being no perceived amendments that would address these shortcomings without compromising the fundamental intention of the scheme the Local Planning Authority had no alternative but to refuse consent.

Take a Trip Down Memory Lane

Recently featured in the Sheffield Star, the 3000 members strong local Facebook history group, “S10 & Surrounding Areas Over the Years”, is, when normality returns, looking
to start meet-ups and expand to share their documented stories, photos, and memories with even more like-minded people.

Although a private group, and therefore having to request to join, applicants are very rarely refused membership, so why not take a look at the Group’s Facebook Page and take a trip down memory lane,  

Just Four More Days

Just Four More Days left to enjoy the experience of traveling on the inexpensive and convenient X57 bus route over the picturesque Snake Pass to Manchester.

The SnakeX57 service, operated by Hulleys of Baslow, provided a useful link from Sheffield – Crosspool – Ladybower – Derwent – Glossop – Hyde and on to Manchester.  
Sadly this socially friendly and efficient service will no longer run after this Saturday 8th January 2022

Bus Route to be Withdrawn

A reminder that the X57bus service to Manchester is due to stop running after the last day of operation on Saturday 8 January 2022  

The X57 Snake route, operated by Hulleys of Baslow, has for the past 18 months, provided a useful link from Sheffield over the Snake Pass through Glossop and onto Manchester.

Sadly, despite the service receiving a positive reception at its launch, the lack of passenger numbers has prompted a decision for the service to be withdrawn.

Hulleys Managing Director; “For a small operator such as ourselves launching such a high-profile service connecting two cities over a tortuous road was always going to be challenging, but we gave it our very best day after day, in spite of the weather, road closures, temporary traffic lights and so on.”  “If buses could run on goodwill then who knows; a huge thank you to those who supported it, either on-board or just cheering from the roadside.
