DLP Planning Ltd has successfully gained planning permission on behalf of the University of Sheffield for the change of use of vacant office space within Sheffield City Centre to provide additional academic floor space as part of the expansion of the University. It will also assist in the reinvestment in the University’s St George’s Campus while refurbishment and upgrades of existing buildings take place.
The proposed change of use provides an active use within the building which will generate employment and also retains the Blood Donor Centre which occupied with ground floor area and was excluded from the development proposals.
New signage was proposed on three frontages to the building and minor works to provide improved ventilation to the building were the limit of the works to the external appearance of the site.
We were pleased to gain officer support for the scheme, with the application being approved under delegated powers.
