In accordance with the right to speak procedure the following people attended the meeting and spoke about the application below:-


-               Erection of floodlighting to football pitch at Sports Pitch, land end of Stone Close, Kiveton Park for Mr. K. Gallagher. (RB2022/1757)


Mr. K. Gallagher (Applicant)

Mr. N. Robertson (Supporter)

Councillor D. Beck (Objector)

Mr. P. Clarke (Objector)

Mrs. T. Shooter (Objector)

Mrs. J. Pickersgill (Objector)

Mrs. M. Barker (Objector)


A statement on behalf of Mrs. S. Walker (Objector) was also read out.


(2)  That application RB2022/0160 be granted for the reasons adopted by Members at the meeting and subject to the relevant conditions listed in the submitted report.


(3)  That the Planning Board declare that it was not favourably disposed towards application RB2022/1757 and that it be refused on the grounds that the erection of the lighting columns will enable the pitch to be used over a longer period of time, particularly late in the evening, thereby exacerbating the level of noise and general disturbance to local residents to the detriment of their residential amenity. No mitigation measures could be put in place to adequately address the harm caused and the development would, therefore, be contrary to Local Plan Policy SP52 ‘Pollution Control’.


The exact wording for this reason for refusal to be agreed in consultation with the Chair and Vice-Chair of the Planning Board.




The following update was provided:-


(a)        Further to Minute No. 174(3) in relation to application RB2022/1639 (Application to vary Condition 2 (approved plans) imposed by RB2020/1860 at land south of Wood Lane, Treeton for Jones Homes (Yorkshire) Ltd.) discussion had taken place with Jones Homes about the Memorial Wheel and its orientation.  On reaching no agreement appropriate action would now be taken to agree the reason for refusal in consultation with the Chair and Vice-Chair of the Planning Board.


The Planning Board would receive an update on progress in due course.


Resolved:-  That the information be noted.


Date of next meeting


Resolved:-  That the next meeting of the Planning Board take place on Thursday, 27th April, 2023 at 9.00 a.m. at Rotherham Town Hall.
