Sheffield United have been granted planning permission to build 39 apartments at the corner of their Bramall Lane stadium, despite protests.

The Blades’ proposals attracted eight letters of objection, mainly on the grounds of lack of parking – with only 22 spaces proposed – and from people unhappy that the four-storey buildings would ‘block daylight’ from their terrace homes.

Members of Sheffield Council’s planning board were also unhappy that no ‘affordable homes’ were included as part of the scheme.
