DLP Planning Ltd has successfully gained planning permission for conversion of a vacant office development in Sheffield City Centre to provide student accommodation.
The partially developed site had lain vacant since construction was halted by the economic climate in 2008. The regeneration of the site was seen as an important stepping stone to the further redevelopment of the West Bar area of the city. DLP worked extensively with the consultant team and the Council’s planning officers to address design, conservation and highways issues and secure a positive recommendation for the scheme.
We were pleased to gain Planning Committee’s unanimous support for the proposals and to secure permission for the client within a 10 week period from submission of the planning application with no pre-commencement conditions attached to the permission. This will enable construction to commence immediately to deliver the scheme for the 2017/18 academic intake.
