Both Carbrook Hall and the Cherry Tree (Carterknowle Road) have successfully gained Asset of Community Value (ACV) status. Thank you to all involved in these applications.
In late April, Royal Assent was gained for the Neighbourhood Planning Bill. This removes permitted development (PD) rights for the change of use or demolition of pubs, a measure to close a planning loophole in England which has allowed pubs to be demolished or converted without a planning application. The decision will not prevent the development of pubs, but will require developers to apply for planning permission.
Pending Sheffield ACV decisions are the Cherry Tree (Carterknowle Road) (decision was due 14/04/17) and Carbrook Hall (17/04/17). Hopefully, these will be the last ACV applications that will need to made for Sheffield pubs.
