Neighbourhood Planning:

Application by Broomhill, Broomfield, Endcliffe, Summerfield & Tapton (BBEST) Neighbourhood Forum for renewal of neighbourhood forum designation

An application has been made to renew the status of BBEST Neighbourhood Forum as the designated neighbourhood forum for the BBEST Neighbourhood Area.

In those parts of Sheffield not covered by a Town or Parish Council a Neighbourhood Forum must be designated by the Council in order to produce a Neighbourhood Plan for the Neighbourhood Area.

Once a neighbourhood forum has been designated another cannot be designated for the area until that existing neighbourhood forum expires or is withdrawn.

BBEST Neighbourhood Forum was designated for a period of 5 years in January 2015 in accordance with the Neighbourhood Planning (General) Regulations 2012 and the Town and Country Planning Act 1990.

This application seeks to renew it for a further 5 years.

The application is supported by a map of the Neighbourhood Area, a copy of the BBEST Neighbourhood Forum constitution, and contact details for the forum.

A copy of the application can be viewed on the Council consultation portal at:  https://sheffield.citizenspace.com/place-planning/neighbourhood-planning-broomhill-broomfield

It is also available to view in Sheffield City Centre at:

  • First Point, Howden House, Union Street, Sheffield S1 2SH
  • Central Library, Surrey Street, Sheffield S1 1XZ

 

and at the following location:

  • Broomhill Community Library, 10 Taptonville road, Sheffield , S10 5BR

 

Comments on the application are invited for a 6 week period from 31 October to 12 December 2019 

To comment on the application contact us preferably by email providing your full name and address:

In other news

Criminal Activity

We seem to be going through a bad patch for criminal activity in our area. In the Banner Cross / Brincliffe locality, there have been a number of burglaries, attempted burglaries and thefts recently. One day this week, at 4.00am, a youth was caught on video around Brincliffe Edge trying car doors. He stole from one that had been left unlocked.
Meanwhile, there is more activity in Ecclesall. At the last Ecclesall Forum, the visiting PCSO Adrian Tolson gave an update on events during August and the beginning of September (see below). Anecdotally, such behaviour is continuing so it’s all the more important than usual to safeguard your property and be extra vigilant. And if you are unlucky enough to suffer from a criminal act (or an attempted one), make sure you report it even if you don’t think it’s important. Patterns will emerge which will then prompt greater police attention.

There is one activity which needs to be stopped! There is a small group of youths going round on motor scooters (usually 3 of them on 2 scooters). You can spot them because they wear white helmets. If you see them make a note of time and place and if you have a dashcam press the ‘protect’ button and take a photo. There is good reason to believe that they have been involved in thefts.

21/8 – late report, attempt house burglary on Blair Athol Road, Ecclesall, owner discovered damage to door lock however no entry gained.

23/8 – house burglary on Springfield Road, Millhouses, rear window smashed to gain entry in the early evening, various items taken.

25/8 – theft from motor vehicle overnight on Whirlowdale Road, no damage to vehicle.

28/8 – attempted burglary on Dobcroft Road early evening, eurolock snapped on rear door however property not entered, may have been deterred by alarm?

28/8 – burglary overnight on Mylnhurst Road, Ecclesall, house under renovation, rear patio door lock snapped, various tools taken from property.

30/8 Ecclesall Road, unlocked unattended van taken from outside a shop, recovered later using tracker.

31/8 Whirlow Court Road, 2 pedal bikes left unattended at side of house between 4 and 4.30, stolen.

4/9 Attempt theft from shed, Greystones Drive, 2 males seen attempting to force door around 08:35 in the morning, no entry gained.

4/9 Theft from shed on Marsh House Road, Ecclesall, 2 pedal bikes taken during day.

 

Gilders Development

This week, we had notice from a member that something was happening at the old Gilder’s site at Banner Cross. She had spoken to a workman to ask about the proposed gym which is due to open eventually behind the glass-fronted first floor space. He told her that there had been a change and that it was now going to be a Tesco Express. We contacted the planning officer who said he knew nothing about it so we can only assume that it is just an unfounded rumour.

However, it’s best to be aware of what’s happening. Residents on Talmont Road are seeing a level of activity on the site that they believe does not comply with the work that has been permitted pending full approval and is going beyond the restrictions the developers are meant to observe.

If you hear anything about this development, please let us know. It has been fairly quiet for some months and that is often a sign that something is about to happen.

 

Flu jabs

The news today has carried an item about the increased availability of the annual flu jab this year. Something like 30 million people will receive it.

If you are having trouble making an appointment with your doctor or you don’t want to take up your GP Practice’s time, remember that pharmacies also give the jab. The pharmacy in the grounds of the Hollies practice on St. Andrew’s Road can give jabs on Wednesdays and Thursdays. You can just walk in and ask for it but it’s best to phone first on 0114 2555937.

 

Bents Green Community Day

The Bents Green Community Day will be taking place on Saturday, 12 October between 11.00am – 4.00pm at Bents Green Methodist Church.

There will be stalls and activities etc. Everyone is welcome.

Final Notice – Removal of Public Payphone: Junction of Tom Lane and Fulwood Road, S10 3GH

15 Aug

Final Notice – Removal of Public Payphone:  Junction of Tom Lane and Fulwood Road, S10 3GH

 The Council and BT have previously consulted on the proposal to remove this payphone service. The initial consultation on BTs proposals to remove the telephone service at the junction of Tom Lane and Fulwood Road, Nether Green took place from 21 May to 1 July 2019.  A further consultation was then undertaken from 8 July to 7 August 2019 on a ‘First Notification’ draft decision to object to the proposal. 

We have now issued a ‘Final Notification’ which is Sheffield City Council’s final decision to not object to the proposed removal of the service on Tom Lane and Fulwood Road. This would allow removal of the payphone equipment and enable Ant Kids Charity to pursue taking ownership of this telephone kiosk under BT’s adopt a kiosk programme.  

A copy of the final notification can be seen here. The response to the consultations can be viewed at https://sheffield.citizenspace.com/place-planning/further-consultation-on-removal-of-bt/
