The 25th March deadline for the controversial Loxley Golf Club planning application is now up.
Concerns about environmental implications for further development of the facility on what is a green-belt site are detailed at our previous article here.
However, Sheffield City Council’s Planning Department today confirmed to us that a decision is not likely until a planning meeting scheduled for 18th May. This is due to requests for more information about the impact of proposed floodlighting at night and data on increased traffic for the golf course and during football matches.
Sheffield Council is also apparently looking into previously unresolved enforcement issues surrounding existing floodlighting and over a domestic dwelling currently on the site that do not seem to have had planning permission either sought or granted.
