Review decision on Mount Pleasant

I have written to the city council’s leader, Julie Dore and CEO, John Mothersole, to say that, as a Sheffield resident, having spent 24 years living in Sharrow, (but now living at Heeley Green), I want to join those protesting against Sheffield Council’s decision on plans for Mount Pleasant, made with their planners’ advice.

A momentary lapse of concentration

Hands up! A momentary lapse of concentration was responsible for my naming Pope John Paul as the speaker to the EU in Strasbourg (Veronica Hardstaff 13.3.18).

The Salvation Army Citadel

The Star’s coverage on Saturday, April 14, of plans to turn the Salvation Army Citadel in Cross Burgess Street into a retail unit may be a little previous.

Things here will not change politically

I recently saw for the first time in the many years I have lived here, two individuals in regulation hard hats and high vis coats picking up litter on the Charnock estate and then to my surprise two days later two more people picking up litter on Manor Top.

Don’t put words in my mouth, face reality

In response to B Heaton’s, “What does he want?”, letter question in the Star, April 12, what I want is for him/her not to put words in my mouth and to face up to EU parliament working reality.

Sadness over our deteriorating estate

How sad it is to see an estate one has lived on for almost 50 years, which was much admired for the way in which it was kept, suddenly deteriorate before one’s eyes.

Heeley National School, Sheffield

I loved time at Heeley school

I was interested in the article about the old Heeley first school, that I attended when it reopened in 1946/47 as an annex for Carfield school.

The Acorn estate in Stannington.

The protection was hard won

David Gill’s letter about dereliction and development in the Loxley Valley, (Suburbanisation is creeping up the valley, The Star, April 6), mentions that Stannington and the Rivelin Valley seem to be protected areas. Those with a long memory will know that protection was hard won.

Time for an update?

We’ve heard and read a lot about Sheffield council’s plans to improve our roads and plant more trees in the past few years.

Why do we not have a similar attitude?

I’m sorry that Jim Lewis finds it necessary to bring politics into the important matter of Sheffield’s built heritage and blames that old chestnut – the Tory cuts, (Star, April 6).

Many council services are not user friendly

It must be over thirty years since Sheffield City Council has faced the level of criticism it is currently experiencing.

Forced to go online

Why is it being made increasingly difficult (and in some cases impossible) to carry out a transaction, acquire information or query anything without being forced to go online?
