say that unless we objected, they were going to copy our information from the help yourself
database, and display it on their own. The email said their site was set up by
“Shop for Support”, saying this was a social enterprise supported by Sheffield
City Council. Unless anybody wants to bring the matter up in any other
business, I will send them (amended) details.

acknowledgement, following our registration of interests in Ecclesfield
Library Services at https://www.sheffield.gov.uk/libraries/library-review/prospectus.htm.

invited to attend at short notice.
- We received an enquiry from
a relative of “Alfred Ridge 1821 – 1894”, asking to view photographs of
him. I don’t think we have any such photographs, so unless anybody wants
to discuss this further, I will forward the email on to Mr Ridge’s other
relatives who found, and showed us, the “Ridge Ledgers”.

[The plan shows this to be a
new detached, three bedroom house, with two floors and a loft windows, fronting
directly on to Jonson Lane. The proposed house looks very close to the 2/3
story flats to its left, perhaps in order to make room for the lawn and
retention of a large tree to the right. An existing, low level dry stone wall
on the right would be replaced by a new fence, but this is towards the back of
the house, and I don’t think it would be visible from Johnson Lane.

is for a change of use from D2 (Club) to A4 (drinking establishment). The club
seems to have deteriorated recently, with the Police having attended late in the
night on the last two weekends. On the first occasion the Police had to endure
being shouted at, and the second time, they had to isolate the club by roping
Yew Lane off. Note that the club have also made an application for an extension
of hours to 1:30 on weekend mornings, as indicated in a note to the minutes of
the last meeting. ]

[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 is recommending that an
"Environmental Statement" be prepared, but I don't know whether this
has been done.]
