Yesterday nine of us SPACE (Sheffield and Peak Against Urban Encroachment) activists met at the ugly lights on Baslow Road for a press photograph with the Star, then off to speak at the Full Council meeting to put our case against them. We were gratified to hear that at last the Council seems to see there is an issue here. There is to be an enquiry into the lights and terminus involving Transport and Highways, the Peak Park Authority, the Head of Planning and SYPTE. So, we activists and our allies - the CPRE and the Peak Park as well as local organisations - have had a real impact here. We want to find out more about the nature of this enquiry. What the outcome will be we don't know and we will argue that we should give evidence too. Our local councillors, from sitting very firmly on the fence, seem to be cosying up to us now....
Evening in the woods - a waxing moon and homeward drifting jackdaws.
