Once again our council is knocking another nail into Firth Park shopping area after the demise of The Wharncliffe Hotel still being considered as a 20-bedroom accommodation.
We now have a planning application for another betting shop on Bellhouse Road.
The planning officers must not live locally or otherwise the planning application wouldn’t even have been considered – three betting shops within 50 metres of each other.
I think it is about time for the council to take a breath and consider the views of their local electors.
