Application No. 20/00414/FUL - Sheffield Car Centre, Eden Park, Penistone Road, Grenoside, Sheffield, S35 8QH



A deleted condition, an amended condition, a correction and an additional representation were included within the supplementary report circulated and summarised at the meeting.



The Planning Officer presented the report on application no. 20/00414/FUL. A visual presentation was given and explained surrounding this application.



Cllr Alan Hooper (Sheffield City Council) and Cllr John Brownrigg (representing Ecclesfield Parish Council) attended the meeting and spoke against the application.



Following the presentation Members raised some concerns and asked questions relating to the character of the area, trees and landscaping, cycle parking, highway safety and the type of pedestrian crossing that was to be provided.



It was explained that a motion could be put forward to amend the wording of suggested condition 9 if Members thought it was necessary. Members expressed their preference for a directive to be added to the permission, should it be approved, to advise the applicant that Members were keen to see a controlled crossing provided.



The Committee considered the report and recommended conditions and an additional directive that the applicant be advised that Members of the Planning and Highways Committee expressed a strong preference for the pedestrian crossing secured by condition 9 to be a controlled crossing (i.e. Pelican or Puffin Crossing), rather than an uncontrolled crossing.



RESOLVED: That an application for planning permission be GRANTED, conditionally, for the reasons set out in the report and supplementary report including the additional directive for the demolition of car sales building and erection of four/ three-storey block comprising 20 dwellings (Use Class C3), convenience store (Use Class E part a) and 2 commercial units (Use Class E part a, c, e and g) with associated parking and formation of site accesses at Sheffield Car Centre, Eden Park, Penistone Road, Grenoside Sheffield, S35 8QH (Application No. 20/00414/FUL).
