Planning Application No. 22/01617/FUL - 39-43 Charles Street and 186-194 Norfolk Street, Sheffield, S1 2HU



Councillor Brian Holmshaw moved that the application should be deferred to allow local residents and ward members more time to make their representations because he stated that they had not been notified of the date of the meeting.  The Officer explained to the Committee the nature of the publicity which had been carried out, which included direct neighbour notification to affected residents; a notice in the Sheffield Telegraph; and notices posted adjacent to the site. This is in line with the statutory requirements for publicising planning applications as well as the Council’s Statement of Community Involvement and Code of Practice for publicity.  The motion was not seconded, so the application proceeded to be heard.



Additional representations, along with the officer response were included within the supplementary report circulated and summarised at the meeting.



The Officer presented the report which gave details of the application and highlighted the history of the site and the key issues in addition to presenting photographs of the site which were provided to committee members in advance of the meeting.



Ann Walton attended the meeting and spoke against the application.



Steve Davis and Chloe Parmenter attended the meeting and spoke in support of the application.



The Committee considered the report and recommendation having regard to the development plan, the National Planning Policy Framework and other relevant considerations as summarised in the report and supplementary report, now submitted and also had regard to representations made during the meeting.



RESOLVED: That an application for planning permission be GRANTED, conditionally, for the reasons set out in the report, now submitted, for demolition of existing buildings and erection of 6-storey office building (Use Class E) with ground floor commercial unit (flexible retail and/or other Use Class E), with associated cycle parking (Resubmission of 21/02206/FUL) at 39 - 43 Charles Street and 186 - 194 Norfolk Street, Sheffield, S1 2HU  (Application No. 22/01617/FUL).
