Wiggan Farm Housing Development set to go to Council Planning Committee.
By Richard Williams
We understand that the above application to build houses in the Middle of Worrall will be heard by Sheffield Council's Planning and Highways Committee at the meeting on 8th December.
The outline application is for up to 67 dwellings to be built on the triangle of greenfield land between, Walshaw, Haggstones and Towngate Roads.
The development has caused great concern for many local resident noting issues including overdevelopment, impact on local facilities (public transports, schools and GP surgeries), and the increased traffic. Many are also concerned that if this goes ahead it will change the character of Worrall and a village community.
At the time of publishing there have been 133 letters or emails submitted to Sheffield City Council, of which 129 strongly object to the application.
These include objections from Bradfield Parish Council and local Lib Dem Cllr Vickie Priestley.
