Appropriation of the Former Bole Hill View Older Persons' Residential Home Site (Eastfield Road, Crookes, Sheffield, S10 1QL) for Housing Purposes.

The former Bole Hill View Older Persons’ Residential Home site, known as ‘Bole Hill View’, is a circa 0.35 hectare site situated off East Hill Road, Crookes, Sheffield, S10 1QL. The site is owned and maintained by Sheffield City Council, within the People Portfolio. It was declared surplus to requirements by the then “Communities” portfolio in 2013. Disused for a number of years, part of the site is occupied by a former older persons’ unit (now vacant). With the site and building now declared surplus to requirements, it is proposed that the site be appropriated to housing purposes (Part II of the Housing Act 1985) and used for the for the provision of new housing through the Council Housing Stock Increase Programme (approved by the Cabinet Member for Neighbourhoods and Community Safety in October 2019).
