The owners of a dangerous fly-tipped site have been told to clean it up by a Sheffield MP and councillors.

Louise Haigh MP, Coun Ben Miskell and Coun Jack Scott have united to call on the owner of the now derelict Park and Arbourthorne Club on City Road to clean up the site which is covered in rubbish.

The club, which is now owned by property developers Trinity Park Estates, was once a popular venue in Arbourthorne, but has fallen into disrepair and suffered from extensive vandalism since its closure.

After receiving complaints from local residents and business owners, councillors and Ms Haigh visited the site and were dismayed to see the build-up of fly-tipping and the state of the building.

Coun Miskell said: “It really is a disgrace to see the area in such a state. It’s covered in hazardous waste including countless fridges and rotting rubbish. We’ve received countless complaints at our surgery from concerned residents. People must take some responsibility and stop fly-tipping, but the owner of this site needs to act to clean up the mess and make the site safe.”

Trinity Park Estates was unavailable for comment.
