The items in the next few sections will not be gone through one by one, but can be discussed in any other business if any member wishes to bring them up.

Communications received, e.g. on ecclesfield.conservation@gmail.com

·        Finally, Doncaster and District Heritage Association is looking for people with connection to the "Queen's own Yorkshire Dragoons" in WW1, both for information, and to invite to a re-dedication. Two of the three sons of Francis Patrick Smith (Solicitor) and his wife Margaret Scott - nee Gatty of Barnes Hall served, so any relations of ...

* Colonel William Mackenzie Smith (b 1869, d 1956 - Solicitor?)

                        * Stephen Alexander Smith (b 1872, d 1927)

                        * Philip Gatty Smith (b 1875, wounded but did not die in 1916)

would be of interest, as would anybody else who knows anything about the people who served in that regiment.

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.


*      Sheffield City Council’s alcohol licensing system is still not on-line. We check their (fortnightly I think) list, but our monthly meetings and downloads miss some of them, and there does not seem to be any accessible record of decisions and rules in force.



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 17th Jun to 24th Sep 2017. I also included a couple of applications slightly outside this area.

[You may be able to click on the underlined links, and then the [Documents] tab to see the drawings etc. Otherwise, just go to planningapps.sheffield.gov.uk/online-applications/, then enter the “Ref. No” for the application you are interested in.
The contents of brackets and italics are my interpretation - usually made after only briefly scanning the documents]

[I noticed a couple of objections to this application {and a reply from the applicant} on the grounds that
1) The new house is 23 {or 15} metres nearer to Whitely Lane, and to No 430 and 432.
2) The proposed dark {high quality charred larch} timber finish is inconsistent with the other properties.
3) The proposed metal {anthracite zinc}roof is inconsistent with the stone slates or tiles of the existing properties.
4) The objector notes that the hamlet is in an “Area of Special Character” and that Whitley Grange, Sylvester Farm, and Whitely Hall Farm are listed buildings. {However, the applicant notes that the existing building is in 1950’s red brick}]

I could not see any “Ecclesfield” applications on the agenda for the next planning meeting at 2pm on 3rd Oct 2017.

·         Two-storey rear extension and front porch
162 Town End Road Sheffield S35 9YY
Ref. No: 17/02346/FUL | Received: Wed 31 May 2017 | Validated: Thu 08 Jun 2017.
[This looks like the last house on Town End Road before it becomes The Wheel. The proposed 2 story extension at the back of the house looks to me as extending about 6 meters to the back of the building, and has already been objected to by a neighbour.
2017-09-25  Decided subject to conditions. The conditions include no windows in the sides of the rear extension at first floor level; a 1,8 metre fence screening No. 138; driveway should be permeable or porous; no buildings, gates, fences, walls etc. on the green belt land; approval of the dropped kerb and vehicle access.
The officers report noted that the scheme has been reduced so that it will now project 4.5 metres beyond the existing extension. They also note that the extension should not be visible from the street; that the dual pitched roof would replace the current flat one; that the porch will replicate the existing porch at 164; and that the extension will be built of matching materials and features.
