Save Loxley Valley Appeal

Developers Patrick Properties have appealed against refusal of planning permission for a township of up to 300 homes in the heart of the Loxley valley. Their case against Sheffield City Council will be heard at a ten-day planning inquiry in April 2021.

Our city councillors voted unanimously to REFUSE planning permission for the new township.

The planners’ report said the township would damage Green Belt openness, harm the special character of the valley, be unsustainable and remote from local services. It said the developers had failed to justify building on a flood plain, and had not provided enough information to judge the impact on biodiversity, landscape, climate change, design quality, pollution and the remediation of derelict land. We think the council got it right! We hoped the developers would accept the verdict and work

Friends of the Loxley Valley have joined forces with CPRE Peak District and South Yorkshire to ensure that the concerns of objectors are voiced as effectively as possible at the appeal inquiry. We want the planning inquiry inspector to know just how strongly local people feel about this!

YOUR donation will help us to pay for professional planning experts to help us to fight our case. The more you give, the greater our chances of winning and defending the city's democratic decision! We believe that the Loxley valley deserves a better solution than unsustainable mass housing.

Even a small donation will help us on our way. Every single pound donated WILL make a difference and will make us stronger. If you’re a taxpayer, please tick the box to ‘Gift Aid’ your contribution – this means your money will work even harder for us. Thank you so much!
