Petition to save Cobnar Cottage

Over twelve thousand three hundred people have signed a petition to stop the sale of an 18th century cottage in Sheffield. Sheffield City Council expect to receive around eighty thousand pounds from the sale of Cobnar cottage, on Cobnar Road in Graves Park. The money is set to be spent on further investment in the park, including improvements to play facilities and footpaths. Sheffield City Council say ‘The cottage has been vacant for many years, sits outside the park boundary wall, forms a tiny fraction of the park, and has never been part of the public amenity of Graves Park.’ The council have no future use for the cottage, and say they do not plan to sell any other part of Graves Park.
