2 New planning apps
The council has submitted 2 new planning apps which will add vital links
to the NCN and take us a step closer to a completed network for the area.
One is for an extension to the Chapeltown Greenway - this will take it as far as the Yalta
industrial Estate which IS in Chapeltown: A future extension will link it to the TPT at NCN/TPT at Cart Road early next year, subject to a funding bid recently submitted. The route will be bituminized as well. This is great news for Chapeltown residents who will have a route free of motor traffic all the way to Meadowhall. In particular it will avoid the nasty hill between Chapeltown and Ecclesfield.
The other one is for an "iconic" bridge over the Parkway near Tinsley Golf Course. This will remedy the shameful current situation where pedestrians, cyclists and horse-riders are supposed to cross the 70 mph Sheffield Parkway at surface level.
