AN APPLICATION to use overgrown land near hospitals and the University of Sheffield as a temporary car park has prompted widespread protests.

Objectors, including the University and community groups, fear traffic hazards and fumes if council permission is granted to asphalt the area for 140 spaces at the corner of Harcourt Road and Northumberland Road.

One six-year-old protester is telling the council: “Just imagine if you were a hedgehog or worm and a metal floor fell on your house and crushed your friends. It’s just not nice to nature.”
