Spacepad Construction has submitted an appeal against the refusal of planning permission to demolish “The Plough” Sandygate Road, Crosspool.

If you have any new information or additional comments to make, you can email the Planning Inspectorate via:

The ‘appeal documents’ should also be available shortly on the Sheffield Planning website: In the search box, enter reference: 19/02130/FUL

DO NOT direct any enquiries to Sheffield Planning Department, all enquiries or comments must go through the Planning Inspectorate.

Highway Trees

Residents are being encouraged to take part in consultations on individual trees; an approach outlined within the Sheffield Street Partnership Tree Strategy. 

The Sheffield City Council want to ensure that our street trees are looked after as valuable assets for the city. As part of this approach to management, they are focused on the need for transparency in decision making and community consultation in the process. This allows local people the opportunity to understand and, if necessary, challenge a tree management decision through a clear and open process.
