Safer Roads Petition

Having witnessed a life changing accident on Manchester Road, Crosspool resident Jo Graham was prompted to jump into action with a campaign to make ALL Crosspool Roads Safer.

Jo’s aim is to get as many people as possible to sign her Safer Roads Crosspool Sheffield Petition, requesting that the Sheffield Council work with the local community to make all Crosspool roads much safer.

Crosspool Precinct

Over the last two months there have been at least two people knocked down and injured on the stretch of Manchester Road between Sandygate Road and Tapton/King Edwards School. 
With the Kings Court residential home, a busy Tesco convenience store and schools being located in this vicinity, Jo is afraid that it can only be a matter of time before more people are injured on this congested stretch of Manchester Road.

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.

The Plough (Home of Football)

You can now view online the Appeal Documents against the refusal of planning permission to demolish the Plough.

Send your comments by email to the Planning Inspector via:
west2@planninginspectorate.gov.uk
The deadline for comments is August 19th 2021.

Sheffield is the home of modern football and “The Plough” played a viral roll in the formation of the game. Demolishing a building with such a significant history would be a huge loss, not only to the Crosspool Community, but to the city as a whole.

Save the Plough and it’s Sporting Heritage .
