  1. I for one will definitely be voting to change from the 'strong leader' model, in favour of something more democratic and less dictatorial
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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
  5. 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
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. 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?
  9. Business Sheffield run one every quarter. We usually have around 100 people, but the one in October was a biggy because we were celebrating our 20th networking event and there were nearer 200 at that. They're always free, they're very relaxed and we get great feedback . Ring 0114 224 5000 (although we haven't set a date yet for the next one but likely to be Feb time), and they'll get you on the system.
  10. Call Business Sheffield 0114 2245000. We have 1-2-1 advice and we also actually run a workshop called Employing people for the first time. Everything we do is FREE
  11. Yes those Venetian drains really are a disgrace aren't they
  12. I have astigmatism and a lazy eye ( same eye) the high street clinics wouldn't touch me. Had both eyes done at Sheffield Vision centre ( Hallamshire hospital) 5 yrs ago best money I ever spent. Not painful but the op is weird, then it's like your eyes are full of grit for several hours and you just need to lie down in a darkened room, and they stream. By the evening of the op the grittiness had gone and my sight was incredible. Takes several weeks for your eyesight to settle at where it's actually supposed to be, and there's some aftercare and do's and don'ts, but for me was well well worth it.
  13. Hi can anyone recommend someone to dry line a couple of bedroom walls onto existing plaster? Thanks
  14. I've signed and shared on social media some time ago
