A planning application has been submitted to convert a Sheffield pub into flats.

Developer Staghold Ltd has submitted an application to Sheffield Council to convert The South Sea pub on Spooner Road, Broomhill, and its accompanying manager’s flat and build two blocks, each home to two apartments.

A spokesman for surveyor Bluestone, working on behalf of the developers, said: “The proposal aims to provide high quality two-bedroom units after demolishing an existing poorly-designed 1970s public house.

“The proposal also aims to enhance the aspect of the existing street, particularly the view from Crookes Road when entering Spooner Road.”

Dr Lee Kenny, of Broomhill Action Group, said: “A lot of people might have fond memories of the pub but I’m not sure many will live around here now. We have a lot of great pubs which are going strong.

“There’s been a big rise in people converting buildings into flats in Broomhill, meaning more people are living in the centre.”

A planning decision is due next month.
