Hi. I have just today heard about plans to demolish a historic cottage in the Mayfield Valley and replace it with an ultra-modern building complete with swimming pool. The proposal is going to the Council’s Planning Committee on October 3rd.

Hallamshire Historic Buildings are organising objections to the proposal. You can read about the proposals here.

I think the Mayfield Valley is one of the delights of Sheffield, not least because of the patchwork of traditional farms and farm houses and buildings. I will be objecting as an individual, and I hope that as many other people as possible will.

I am also asking the Ramblers Committee to consider the application.
