From pub to homes

Revised proposals to demolish The Wheel pub in Plumbley Hall Road, Mosborough, to make way for seven houses were given the council go-ahead on Tuesday, despite some local concerns about the loss of a pub, an increase in traffic and “overdevelopment”.

A council report said: “Whilst the pub did serve the local community, there are similar facilities close by, such that its loss is not a reason to resist this proposal.”
