If you care about Sheffield’s Heritage

Hallamshire Historic Buildings has very grave concerns about Sheffield City Council’s proposal to dismantle the Planning Dept’s conservation team, a move which would see the two remaining Conservation Officers lose their jobs.
Should this plan go ahead external consultants would be brought in, on an ad hoc basis, to replace the Conservation Officer roles. We fear we will then see big developers given little resistance as they further erode our city’s heritage.
The move would also almost certainly mean the termination of the Conservation Advisory Group. This is a panel of professionals who give their time once a month, free of charge, to offer the Planning Dept the benefit of their vast expertise on planning applications that have a heritage impact. The HHB has been represented on this panel for over 30 years.
