This is the closest look yet at the planned £300 million extension of Meadowhall.

The shopping centre has released a video 'fly through' of the leisure hall, for which a planning application was submitted last week.

“As consumers, retailers and Sheffield evolves, so too must Meadowhall, ” he said. “The leisure hall, however, goes much further.

“It will retain spend in the Sheffield City Region by ensuring residents do not need to travel out of the area to fulfil their shopping and leisure needs.
