Plans to demolish a Sheffield pub and replace it with a supermarket have been rejected.
Sainsbury’s had applied for permission for the scheme on the site of The Bradway Hotel, Bradway Road.
Sheffield Council’s planning board voted against a recommendation by planning officers to approve the scheme - with councillors saying the design was of ‘poor character and quality’.
Dore and Totley councillor Joe Otten, whose ward includes Bradway, said: “Sainsbury’s have retained the facades of converted historic pubs in other locations.
“I now hope we can find a solution for the Bradway Hotel site, which actually works for our area.”
Sainsbury’s has been granted permission to convert the old Hadfield Hotel, Crookesmoor, into a convenience store.
