Property description

Key Points

  • Positive pre application response for residential development
  • Potential for development of alternative uses subject to planning
  • Attractive location on the edge of Sheffield City Centre, adjacent to Kelham Island and the A61 Inner Ring Road, with easy access to Sheffield Train Station and the M1 Motorway

  • Location

    The Property is located on the edge of Sheffield City Centre, within walking distance of the principal retail core and the central business district. It is also adjacent to the historic and desirable Kelham Island residential quarter, which is home to a range of restaurants, bars, pubs, cafes, microbreweries and galleries, making it one of the most desirable places to live in the city.

    The A61 Inner Ring Road is located immediately to the south of the Property, providing easy access to the Sheffield Parkway and the M1, circa 3 miles away. The Property is also circa 1 mile from Sheffield Train Station, which provides direct access to Leeds (fast train circa 40 minutes), Manchester (1 hour) and London (circa 2 hours).

    Further south of the A61 Inner Ring Road is the River Don and beyond this is Urbo’s West Bar development, the first phase of which is funded by Legal & General will include a new 100,000 sq ft office building, ground floor retail and leisure space and 368 Build to Rent apartments as well as a multi-storey car park.
    Sheffield is the administrative centre of South Yorkshire and England’s 3rd largest metropolitan authority. The city is located approximately 35 miles south of Leeds, 40 miles south east of Manchester and 165 miles north of London. It benefits from excellent travel links, including junctions 33 and 34 of the M1 motorway.


    The seller submitted a pre application enquiry to Sheffield City Council in 2021 proposing the following development options for the Property:

    439 one two and three bedroom apartments within three separate buildings between 5 and 10 storeys in height.
    134 one two and three bedroom apartments within two separate buildings of 7 and 8 storeys in height plus 65 houses comprising two, three and four beds.
    82 houses comprising two, three and four beds.
    Plans showing the development options are available to view on the Data Room.

    The pre application enquiry response advises that the Property falls within a General Industrial Area, as defined in the adopted Sheffield Unitary Development (udp) and that Policy IB5 advises that the preferred uses in such areas are B2 (General Industrial) uses and B8 (warehousing). Acceptable uses include Small Shops (A1), Offices used by the public (A2), Food and Drink Outlets (A3), Business (B1), Hotels (C1), Community facilities / institutions (D1), leisure and recreation facilities (D2), Hostels and Lorry parks. Residential institutions (C2) and Housing (C3) are listed as unacceptable but the pre application enquiry response notes the following:

    "this designation is now considered to be out of date following the adoption of the Core Strategy. Policy CS6(b) identifies the area as a transition area, where manufacturing should be encouraged to relocate. Policy CS17 (j) which relates to the city centre quarters, identifies Kelham/ Neepsend as formerly dominated by industry but becoming a focus for new riverside housing and jobs.

    Development of the site for housing would help to achieve the aim of Core Strategy Policy CS24 which seeks to maximise the use of previously developed land for new homes. Core Strategy policy CS26 aims to make efficient use of land for new housing, setting out appropriate density ranges depending on location and accessibility. This site is near to the City Centre being situated on the ring road, and the appropriate density range is therefore at least 70 dwellings per hectare.

    Options one and two would both achieve densities in excess of 70 dwellings per hectare, however, option three as indicatively illustrated does not appear to meet this requirement."

    The pre application enquiry response also advises that Community Infrastructure Levy and Affordable Housing contributions are rated zero in this location. For further information on planning please contact Sheffield Council’s planning department direct.
