Another Piece of History is set to Disappear

Plough Inn Sandygate Road

Planning officers are recommending that the application to demolish the Plough Inn, Sandygate Road is approved; we are calling on our elected councillors to overturn that decision. Please let your local councillor know, before next Tuesday, August 4th, that our community is opposed to the loss of this landmark building.

Please see below contact details for our local councillors

tim.huggan@councillor.sheffield.gov.uk

mohammed.mahroof@councillor.sheffiled.gov.uk

anne.murphy@councillor.sheffield.gov.uk

The report from planning officers states that the condition of the building is not due to poor management or neglect by the owner but is due to break-ins and vandalism, but  there was no mention of the Enforcement Notice issued by the City Council!

The report states that the £50,000 rent for the pub as advertised by the owner was ‘reasonable’ but states that the majority of other comparable pubs were offered at ‘significantly less’.

The report states that there are two other pubs within 800m of the Plough but acknowledges that the Cherry Tree was saved even though there were pubs within 800m because the area around the Cherry Tree is ‘hilly’
It seems that Crosspool is not ‘hilly’

These are just some of the inconsistencies in the officers’ report.

The report will be considered by the Planning Committee next Tuesday, August 4th at 2 p.m. This is a virtual meeting that can view via a Webcast. You can find details here:

This is an artist impression of what is proposed to replace The Plough, if the planning officers recommendation is approved by councillors at next week’s meeting.

    Thank you. We have emailed the three councillors. All to no avail I am sure. This has all been engineered . Extremely sad and wrong
