Plea to protect surroundings

Have your say

CALLS have been made for trees, walls and cobbles to be protected within a Sheffield conservation area after consultation about its future.

Sheffield Council sent letters to 550 residents and businesses around the Hanover and Northumberland Conservation Areas proposing minor boundary changes and extensions to protect further properties.

Conservation area status restricts development rights to ensure the character appearance of the neighbourhoods are protected.

Sheffield Council’s cabinet is set to approve the changes.
