Site notice posted 30th June

Deadline for township comments is extended AGAIN to 30th July

STOP PRESS: The planning department has now completed a new set of site notices around the Loxley valley. So far as we can tell, they have updated them ALL with the date when the last notice was posted.

The photograph above shows one of the new notices at Rowell Bridge. It’s slightly smeared by the rain, but you can see that the new date of posting is 30th June.

This replaces the notice posted a little earlier on 24th June, (see our last news post).

The notice wording makes it clear: you now have 30 days from 30th June to submit comments on the proposed new Loxley valley township.

So if we’ve calculated correctly the NEW new deadline is now Thursday 30th July.

The planning application for the old refractory works would mark a huge change for life in the Loxley valley. If you have not yet commented, we would urge you to do so.

For details on HOW to do this, and WHY we think the new notices have gone up, please see our previous news post.

Do you want to know more about the planning application?

Developers Patrick Properties have proposed a township of up to 300 homes. We have summarised their plans, and our concerns, in an earlier news post on this website. You can also view the full planning application, and all associated documentation, on the Sheffield City Council website. The reference number for the planning application is 20/01301/OUT

Would you like to make your views known to the planners?

This would destroy forever a beautiful landscape and valuable wildlife habitat for the profit of developers. Responsible planning should under no circumstances allow this.

The surrounding countryside in the valley was one of the main reasons i settled in the area. The valley paths have been a real refuge during covid (as before) and should be in the future. There is rich wildlife and fauna to be seen.
The increased traffic on loxley road and malin bridge should not be understimated, even with the proposed infrastucture there is no doubt most peope will drive. Loxley road is a very popular route out of sheffield for runners and cyclists and the increased traffic will only make it more dangerous given the speed people already drive on this road.
The site itself is also prone to flooding not ideal.
