Pub breaking planning rule

Have your say

NEW bosses of a Sheffield pub are being ordered to remove a kitchen ventilation system and lighting in the car park which was erected by the previous owners without planning permission.

Sheffield Council’s city centre, south and east planning board is set to approve enforcement action over the ‘unauthorised’ installations at the Norfolk Arms pub, a grade II listed building at Ringinglow.

Members of the committee are set to approve the action at a meeting on Monday.

Enforcement action notices had already been served on the previous owners.

Sheffield Council planning officers said they would approve a ‘more sympathetic’ design for the ventilation equipment, which currently includes a tall extraction flue.

They added that while ‘some level of illumination is required’ in the car park, the design of the galvanised steel lighting columns were ‘visually intrusive’ in the locality, which is on the edge of the Peak District.
