New planning application for former Master Brewer pub site

A new planning application has been submitted for the former Master Brewer pub site in Bramley. The pub has been closed for over a year, and a previous planning application from AEON Financial Services for offices and two houses had been granted by the council.

AEON’s new application no longer includes the houses, but instead would provide for office space, four shop units, with a car park to the rear (accessed via Howard Road).

Click here to view the new application and make comments. Public consultation runs until November 14th.

Magna Lane, Hill Top Lane road repairs

The council has written to residents in the area to inform them of forthcoming road repairs to Hill Top Lane and Magna Lane, which runs between Wickersley and Dalton. Residents who use the lane will be aware of the damaged road surface. The areas to be resurfaced are highlighted on the map above and works are expected to take place over the next few months.

Meanwhile the resurfacing of Springfield Avenue at Wickersley as part of our 2020 Roads Programme is due to begin within the next few days.

Installation of the planned pedestrian island at Brook Lane in Bramley has disappointingly been delayed due to unforeseen circumstances, but we are hopeful that the works will be undertaken within the next few weeks, and certainly before Christmas.

Footpath lighting commitment from our neighbourhood budget

The footpath between Mark Grove Neighbourhood Centre and Elder Drive will be lit with new streetlights as one of the first projects to be funded from our new devolved neighbourhood budget.

The path, which sits behind houses on Larch Avenue and Willow Close, had been raised with us as a location where residents had been worried about anti-social behaviour on the past. We consulted with residents in the area who were overwhelmingly in favour of lighting the path. Hopefully once they’re in the place the new lights will help people to feel safer, especially on dark winter evenings.

We have also committed to support a new sign for the neighbourhood centre, and four seperate community skips which will take place in locations across the ward over the coming months.

We’ve already delivered thousands of our 2017 Big Surveys to make sure we’re hearing the priorities of local people, so if you’ve not yet returned yours please don’t forget – and if you’ve not received one yet it should be coming through your door very soon.

Reaction to today’s HS2 announcement 

Responding to today’s announcement from the government which confirms their intention to route HS2 through Rotherham along the M18, Cllr Chris Read, Leader of RMBC, said;

“The government and HS2 have made the wrong decision today. The idea of major transport improvements connecting South Yorkshire to other major centres of population is an important one with potentially valuable economic benefits, and clearly something that we would support – so this proposal is a kick in the teeth. 

“It is particularly disappointing that the government ignored the evidence we presented alongside Doncaster MBC which showed that this proposal involves spending an extra £1.7 billion over the lifetime of the project to deliver 70% cent fewer journey seats per hour, 25% slower journey times, and 30% fewer new jobs for our area when compared to a station at Meadowhall. It is a second class service for Rotherham. 

“Residents, especially those living on or close to the route, deserved much better than this from the government and we will continue to do all that we can to ensure that their voices are heard.”
