Information watch


Issues from previous minutes

If any members can help, or want to bring any of the following up for any other reason, they can do so in any other business.


*     Our on-line archive needs quite a bit of work to get going - perhaps as a window to our physical archive.


*     Designs for the pop-up banners are still in progress.

*      We have a fireproof trunk for storing archive material. Members might prefer a more generally accessible location if one can be found [As well as perhaps other things such as our Gazebo].


*      We still have plans to survey major trees within the Conservation Area.


*      We are still encouraging Sheffield City Council to proceed with their project to get their alcohol licensing system on-line so that everybody can see the opening times etc. which apply to each of the premises in the area. We are continuing to check their manual list of licence applications, but our monthly meetings and downloads miss some of them.



New planning applications

The following planning applications were found by searching for Ward = “East Ecclesfield”, Parish = Ecclesfield Parish Council”, postcodes S35 9?? and S35 1TE, validated from 39th March to 21st  May 2017.

[Some of the applications have underlined links in which case you should be able to click on them to see the [Details] and for the plans etc, the [Documents] tab. For applications without links, just click on any of the links, then “Search > Planning > Simple Search”, and enter the “Ref. No” for the application you are interested in.

[Granted but only as a 12 month trial.
Note that 108 representations against, (2 in favour).
The arguments listed in the report to the committee, and are therefore presumably valid objections
to this and perhaps other planning applications were…
- Wrong location for such a use
- Inadequate notification regarding the proposal
- Noise issues
- Nuisance/disturbance  issues
- Parking problems
-Traffic problems
- Other pubs have closed down in  the immediate vicinity so why need another
- Anti-social behaviour
- No control of people drinking outside the premises
- Increase in litter problems
- Potential signs that could impact on visual amenity
- Impact on public transport
- Problems with free flow of public transport if cars re parked on the road
- Request the application go to committee and not be delegated
