Owlthorpe Fields saved!

3rd June 2020

We are delighted that the Planning Committee of Sheffield City Council rejected the planning application to build houses on Owlthorpe Fields.

This is the right decision. The councillors asked the right questions and realised that the site deserves much better. We hope the developer can now look constructively at bringing forward a much improved scheme which will create a far more sustainable, low carbon community that provides more homes but with far less negative impact which will be fit for the 21st century.

We’re so proud to have worked with our friends at the Owlthorpe Fields Action Group and the Sheffield and Rotherham Wildlife Trust, to secure this fantastic achievement.
