  1. I'm not sure how helpful that will be as from what I have seen different councils are using different methods. For Sheffield businesses go to www.sheffield.gov.uk/coronavirus-business or ring 0114 224 5000 if you have any questions about entitlement/missing info asked for on the form etc. We also have a team of business advisers on the above number who can give advice/guidance on what else is available/business continuity etc
  2. Posting on behalf of Business Sheffield (part of SCC) If you'd like information on the £10k and £25k grants available for many businesses in Sheffield, being paid because of the Coronavirus crisis please call 0114 224 5000 and we'll do everything we can to help.
  3. I doubt they had a superiority complex, anymore than the large groups of cyclists that have caused the government to specifically threaten to take away the 'privilege' of riding a bike if they don't desist. I'm personally riding on my own, and I keep my horse at my own place so don't need to mix with anyone else to get him ready so no problem there. Many riders aren't confident taking their horses out on their own (you could argue they shouldn't really be in charge of a horse, but hey ho) we're all having to adapt, and people find new things difficult, so try not to be too judgemental
  4. and with Sheffield being the 3rd worse place in the country for number of confirmed cases it's a worry isn't it
  5. 361 confirmed cases in Sheffield, the 3rd highest in the country, after Birmingham at 428, and Hampshire (yes I know that's a county, not a city, but that's how Public Health England are recording their data) at 384. Check out the stats here https://www.arcgis.com/apps/opsdashboard/index.html#/f94c3c90da5b4e9f9a0b19484dd4bb14 Worrying reading, and perhaps a wake-up call to anyone who still feels complacent/invulnerable/immortal ?
  6. Hi yes I wanted to start a thread where younger people able to help those in their area who are older/unwell could be put in touch with one another. Thinking things such as running errands, doing some shopping or just a friendly phone call Since I first tried to start the thread a few days ago I've taken on 3 households just from people I know, but could still offer some help if you're in the Loxley, Wisewood, Worrall, Bradfield or Wadsley area. So if you or a relative need help please pm me. Is there anyone else out there who could offer their help? Cheers
  7. I for one will definitely be voting to change from the 'strong leader' model, in favour of something more democratic and less dictatorial
  8. This is a massive development, which would forever change the character of the area and over-burden local infrastructure most specifically roads and schools. It will destroy what is fundamentally a rural area, within sight of Peak National Park, and is in my opinion wholly out of proportion. I can only assume/hope the figure of 350 houses is an 'opening gambit' and not a realistic proposal. A small, sensitive development of circa maximum 60-80 houses, could I believe resolve the problem of the disused refractory without destroying the area, but as ever money talks.
  9. It's not some figment of my imagination, it's going to happen unless SCC stop it. Bradfield Parish Council are objecting to it, and there's a local residents campaign being run, which is how I heard of it. You may think it's a great idea, you're entitled to your opinion, but making childish sweeping nonsense statements like the one above is neither helpful nor interesting.
  10. The decision is imminent and I'd expect if it gets the green light it will happen sooner rather than later. The driving range and the golf club are not connected. 8,500 lorries will effectively put the area out of bounds for walkers, cyclist horse riders etc. I doubt a vast man made mound will increase the value of any property, apart from the driving range
  11. Thanks for that, unfortunately you can't add comments to the portal now. You can however email marcus.young@sheffield.gov.uk the case officer dealing with it, and cc Principal Planning Officer adam.chapman@sheffield.gov.uk
  12. I've emailed the Principal Planning Officer and my would be Lib Dem MP. I only found out about it on Sunday, from locals who have started a campaign. There was a very similar application to dump at Hillsborough Golf Club, but that was turned down, looks like they've just moved across the road instead.
  13. It hasn't happened yet, but will do unless Sheffield's planning department puts a stop to it. I've tried to put a comment on the planning portal, but they've stopped any comments being added, so it's not looking good.
  14. Has anyone else heard about the imminent plans to dump 77,000 tonnes of spoil at Loxley Driving Range. It will involve circa 8,500 lorries over about 2 and half years, and will be an eyesore for miles around. The scheme is the 'brainchild' of Hague Plant Hire. How can something like this be allowed to happen in the Green Belt less than a mile from Peak Park?
