The FoPV Registry
We are developing and maintaining a record of the wildlife and changes which are witnessed in the valley throughout the year. To find out more, and how you can contribute see our Registry Page.
We are delighted to announce that Planning Permission has been GRANTED, valid for three years. There are some conditions to the permission which include:
These conditions are what we were expecting, given that these are things that need to be addressed during the detailed design work. We now have all the permissions in place to enable us to apply to potential donors for the outstanding monies.
We have a new publication available in our online shop. It's called Walking the Porter Valley and combines a walking guide with a wealth of information about the Porter Valley.
Take a journey up the Porter Valley, looking at the flora, fauna, geology and history of our much loved and used area in Sheffield. Follow the River Porter from Hunters Bar to its source on the moors, near Rud Hill.
It is also richly-illustrated with old photographs and information showing what the valley was like in the past.
The FoPV are taking a close interest in the council's latest consultations for potential flood defences within the Porter Valley. Following the consultation late last year the council have announced that the proposal at Whiteley Woods will no longer be considered. You can read their full press release here.
The original plans included proposed projects within the Porter Valley such as barriers at three locations including one at Endcliffe Park and we would encourage you to see what is being considered by looking at the Councils website at floodprotectionsheffield.com.
The FoPV response to the consultations in 2016 was made after receiving comments and suggestions from our members.
