DLP have secured full planning permission for the demolition of three buildings at the Davy Industrial Park in Sheffield, and construction of a new car park to serve the remaining businesses at the industrial park.
The buildings to be demolished include a former medical centre and a derelict storage building. The buildings had been in disuse for some time with little prospect of a new tenant being found. DLP were instructed by the owners of the site to undertake pre-application discussions with Sheffield City Council for the proposals, which sought to secure a viable use for the land and support the remaining businesses operating from the Industrial Park by providing additional car parking for employees and visitors. The proposals included the opportunity to install a bike shelter and disabled parking spaces, as well as landscaping at the entrance to the Industrial Park.
The planning application was submitted to Sheffield City Council in October. DLP liaised with the Council to ensure that all matters were addressed without the need for details to be required by condition. Planning permission was by delegated authority a week ahead of the Council’s target determination deadline.
