Supermarket giant’s fresh bid for store to replace Sheffield pub

Have your say

Sainsbury’s is seeking permission for revised plans to bulldoze a Sheffield pub and build a convenience store.

The supermarket giant wants to open a branch on the site of the Bradway Hotel, Bradway Road, with car parking and a service area.

A previous application was refused in July because councillors felt the design lacked quality and distinctiveness when a building of ‘local merit’ was being lost.

Sainsbury’s new plans involve increasing the height of the frontage to ‘increase prominence’, and using ‘high quality’ stone cladding.

Four neighbours and Bradway Action Group are opposing the development.

A decision will be made by Sheffield Council planning board on Tuesday.
