DLP (Planning) Ltd are pleased to announce that planning permission and Listed Building Consent has been secured for the conversion of a vacant Grade II Listed Building at Glossop Road, Sheffield, previously in use as offices, to provide five residential apartments.
Located in the Broomhill Conservation Area, the building, known as West Mount, sits within its own grounds and is set back from Glossop Road with a clearly defined, impressive front entrance.
DLP led early negotiations with Sheffield City Council regarding the elements of the building requiring retention and, in some cases, reinstatement. Non-original partitions in the main hallway will be removed during renovations, opening up the building to its original proportions. Externally, new timber sliding sash windows will replace 1950’s metal casements, render and roof coverings will be updated, repairs will be made to damaged stone and a new timber bike and refuse storage will be installed. Proposed landscaping will enhance the area around the building and give a more domestic appearance and scale to the former office building.
The conversion will provide four 2 bedroom apartments within the main building and a single studio flat, self-contained within the adjacent Carriage House. The proposals will better reveal the significance of the Listed Building and secures the future use and ongoing maintenance of the heritage asset.
