DLP Planning Ltd has successfully secured permission at planning committee for a major housing scheme at Mosborough in south Sheffield. This Council-owned site had been derelict for over 10 years and issues including significant level changes, drainage and creation of a new access into the site had to be addressed as part of the planning application.
DLP led extensive pre-application discussions with the planning authority to ensure that the submitted application provided connectivity with the surrounding residential area and neighbouring recreational facilities and was also sensitively designed to address matters of highways safety. Once the application was submitted, DLP worked closely with planning officers to secure support for the development of 2, 3 and 4 bedroom dwellings and to ensure attractive areas of open space were achieved within the site. The planning authority particularly welcomed the provision of policy compliant, on-site affordable housing provision to meet an identified local need within the area.
A number of comments were received from local residents during the applications preparation and determination and DLP worked with Miller Homes in seeking to resolve concerns raised, including through the provision of additional landscape to maintain privacy to the amenity spaces of properties surrounding the site.
This instruction represents one of a number of sites currently being promoted by DLP on behalf of Miller Homes in Sheffield. With a strong record of delivery on permissions, we look forward to working with the Miller team again in the future to support the delivery of much needed housing in the region.
