Local pub facing demolition to make way for property development

A planning application (10/03887/FUL) has been submitted for the Hallamshire Hotel building on Lydgate Lane. It proposes that the former pub is demolished to make way for four dwelling houses, two apartments and detached garage block.

The planning, design and access statement (PDF, 515KB) for the application states:

There has been a succession of short term tenants, all of whom have failed to successfully operate a sustainable and profitable business. Clearly licensed use for this site is no longer the most viable form of operation.

The pub has been closed for several months now, with the windows boarded up.

Residents have until 25 January 2011 to comment on the application.

  1. Please note!
    The plans have now been changed and are up for approval. They are now planning 5 houses. 4 terrace houses on Lydgate Lane and 1 detatched house at the back of the plot ovlerlooking the rear gardens of the surrounding properties.
    I was more than happy with the original plans but to squeeze a detatched house onto the middle of the site is not acceptable in my opinion. Especially when it is at the bottom of my garden looking over many properties.
    Please look at the the application (12/00800/FUL)

    1. Stuart! Why not plants new trees in your garden will helps! Detached house does not have windows overlook your garden, you should’ve grateful that developer is at the moment rebuild new walls for you, you don’t need new fence, I am very grateful for developer rebuild my garden wall increasing height and very private than before also laid new patio for me I have no objection detached house at back of my garden. Look at Cross lane Mews is worst than our back garden!
