Planning Applications

Coal Recovery and Restoration Scheme

Former Hesley Wood Tip Smithy Wood Road Chapeltown Sheffield S61 2SE

Ref. No: 12/01946/FUL | Received: Fri 29 Jun 2012 | Validated: Mon 02 Jul 2012 | Status: Pending Consideration

[The site plan shows this to be to the North of Cowley Hill, running between Chapeltown and the M1 to stop just before Hesley wood. RecyCoal say that a coal washing plant will be built, 35 local jobs created, and 395,000 tonnes of coal extracted over 3 years. Access to the site is directly on to Cowley Hill and thence to M1 J35. Soil will then be imported and planted with grass and 41,000 trees. "A" frame barriers will then be installed, giving access to hard surfaced paths. Ancient woodland on the edge of the site will be preserved. The site is within the Green Belt and two residents have objected, on nature conservation, amenity and environmental grounds. Also, Natural England are recommending that an "Environmental Statement" be prepared, but I don't know whether this has been done. Also note the news items in "Information watch" above .]
