Confirmed victory
Petitioning Sheffield City Council

Refuse planning permission for houses on Wincobank Hill

The land is designated open space with Greenfield status. It within 200m of the Wincobank hillfort which is a scheduled monument. The building works will take place on the line of the Roman Ridge. To build on this site is to strangle access to the hill and will prevent current and future generations opportunities to gain meaningful perspectives on Sheffield's earliest settlement. It is a unique aspect of Sheffield's heritage which has remained underexploited because of entrenched attitudes to the area and the presumed role of heritage within the community. Whilst most regions have understood the importance of cherishing whatever heritage resources they have Sheffield City Council are in danger of making a decision here which will be an embarrassment and a missed opportunity to better develop the potential of this site not just for a land speculator but for the good of all Sheffield communities.
