Development going ahead

According to the Sheffield Telegraph, the council have approved Miller Homes application to build around 140 houses on the land owned by Hallam University between Hemsworth Rd, Derbyshire Lane, Warminster Road and Mount View Road. The plans include;

● 131 homes built in total.
● 90 two-storey houses with garages.
● 40 properties for housing association.
● 24 for affordable social housing.
● 16 for shared ownership.

Despite 35 objections, it was approved. It remains to be seen how this affects the quality of life for those surrounding the area, the increased pressure on schools and how we will all deal with 100+ more cars coming out onto Derbyshire Lane twice a day.

The SCC planning website says the case is still awaiting approval, but it seems certain to go ahead. The site plan is shown below and can be downloaded here.

  1. We live on Derbyshire lane directly opposite the proposed site and have not been notified it had even gone to planning let alone had the chance to object

  2. Dear Sirs
    The building of these homes and the access is absolutely ridiculous,the entrance is immediately after a blind bend and an accident waiting to happen. The road is already congested even more so when there are events in the park.where the 35 objections have come from I do not know the liberal councillor had 141 with him on the day.The representive from the council reckoned they had done surveys on the road, and when asked about this could not even produce or even say when this was done and what the figures were. The council accepted that school places were an issue, and these homes are family homes so where do these children go to school.There are questions to be asked how this is going ahead.
