Big wheel to roll on for another year

THE operators of Sheffield's big wheel are set to gain a one-year extension to their six-month permit.

Great City Attractions, which runs the giant structure in Fargate, currently has permission to occupy the site until the end of next month. But now the company is seeking planning permission to continue running the attraction until the January 2011.

Despite initial controversy over the scheme, Sheffield Council planning officers have recommended councillors grant an extension when they meet on Monday January 4.
