Historic Crosspool Pub Set to be Demolished

Plough Inn

Last year the Plough Inn on Sandygate Road escaped demolition after plans to turn the site into eight new three-bedroom townhouses were refused by Sheffield Council.

Townhouses

Following an appeal this decision has now been overturned by the planning inspector, allowing the developers’ plans to go ahead. See full report in the “Sheffield Star”.

  1. Thank you. It was enviable. Unfortunately.
    So it seems it may as well have been a Sainsburys. Shocking to be allowed to knock down a local historic building.
    The seller wanted the highest price for the plot and got it. Everything is down to money in the end Very sad. 😦

  2. The inspector’s remarks are outrageous, ignoring the substantial number of local residents who demonstrated their support for a community pub by pledging financial support.
