I’d like to protest in the strongest terms about a proposal from Sheffield University to carry out major work on the playing fields off Warminster Road.
Their plans include 78 car parking spaces, a coach parking area, eight 15m high floodlights, covered spectator accommodation for hundreds and a tall acoustic screen, all in a quiet, peaceful neighbourhood.
Aside from the inevitable noise and light pollution, Warminster Road simply cannot cope with the extra level of traffic this would generate.
They are popular playing fields, but there is no need for this unwarranted commercial development, at the expense of local residents.
