DLP Planning has secured outline planning permission for a residential development of 38 dwellings at Baldwin’s Omega, Brincliffe Hill, Sheffield.
The site comprises Baldwin’s Omega, a restaurant and events venue located in the Nether Edge area of Sheffield to the south west of the city centre, just off Psalter Lane.
The site lies within a Housing Policy Area as per the Sheffield Unitary Development Plan (1998). The area is residential in character with a range of neighbouring properties at Chelsea Court and Brincliffe Hill, from where it’s access is currently taken.
The application proposal comprised the demolition of the existing built form and residential development of 38 dwellings at the site. Approval of a new access from Chelsea Court was also sought, due to constraints from the existing access at Brincliffe Hill. All other matters including landscape, layout, scale and design are to be subject to approval at the reserved matters stage. The outline scheme was designed by be1 Architects.
The planning submission sought a 5 year outline planning permission in order to enable the business to continue to operate in the short term whilst achieving longer term security in terms of the future redevelopment of the site.
DLP successfully demonstrated that the proposal could achieve significant benefits in terms of housing provision, and that the re-use of previously developed land in this urban location would contribute towards achieving sustainability policy aims. The Council agreed that the development proposal for the site complied with local and national planning policy.
Outline planning permission was granted on 23rd February 2016 at Planning Committee.
