It can be extremely therapeutic to have a big clear-out at home and discover items long since forgotten, and it’s even better when you can sell something on so that someone else can enjoy it.
There’s nothing better than venturing out on a sunny Saturday morning with family and friends to hunt for fantastic bargains. Forget eBay and the like … the humble car boot sale offers the perfect platform for meeting like-minded people for exchanging items.
Okay, so we’re not blessed with the best of weather here in the UK. If it does rain, then the area is tarmacked and there’s always good food and drink to enjoy in the Crosspool Tavern.  
Come rain or shine, there will always be traders and buyers willing to brave the elements in search of hidden gems that may be lurking on one of the many stalls.
Just remember that even if you no longer need something, another person might – and by the end of the morning, you could have earned a tidy sum of cash for your unwanted items and helped the environment by recycling.

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”.

THE PLOUGH AT RISK OF BEING DEMOLISHED

The Current owners of The Plough Inn, Sandygate Road (Spacepad Construction) has submitted an appeal against the refusal of planning permission for it to be demolished.

The Plough – Crosspool

 In the main, the appeal documents restate the case made in the original application. Some of the key parts of their claims in their submission include:

“That despite the best efforts to secure the site, most of the damage to the site is due to vandalism and fly tipping by the public.
“The pub was not supported by the local community and that it is unviable as a pub due to lack of interest and customers”.
“That the £50,000 annual rent they advertised was reasonable in comparison to other similar pubs”.

If this part of Sheffield’s heritage is to be saved, the Planning Inspectorate needs to be made aware that the vandalism and fly tipping is NOT the reason that the site became such an eyesore.

Again, the need is to counter this appeal by demonstrating a high level of local support for this building of historic value.

A coordinated response is being compiled by the community campaign ‘Save The Plough’. Please send your, comments and views in a statement about how you or your community group have shown support for the pub, e.g. being willing to invest in community shares, or have observed building rubbish being dumped there, unregistered cars appearing on the site, frequent fires, etc. (Any photos, or knowledge of the rental values of other pubs would be really useful) Email: ploughsandygate@gmail.com

If you want to make your own comments directly to the Planning Inspectorate, you can email them:
west2@planninginspectorate.gov.uk
Please use reference: APP/J4423/W/21/3267944.
Include your name and address (you can ask this is not disclosed) and state clearly whether you are for or against the appeal.

The deadline is August 19th.
