Bar extra hours bid is set for approval

A TRENDY Sheffield city centre bar is expected to be granted permission to open later at weekends despite objections from neighbouring residents about noise.

Alibi, on Trippet Lane, has applied to Sheffield Council's city centre, south and east planning board for consent to stay open until 1.30am on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays and 12.30am other nights.

Planning officers recommended approval. The bar's experimental planning permission to operate extended hours expired in October. It can now open until 12.30am each night.

Six neighbours objected, citing "increased noise" since Alibi opened in May. They said there was a "glut of noisy bars encouraging disruptive behaviour into the early hours" and revellers vomit and urinate in the street.

But seven people wrote in support of the plans, to be decided by the planning board on Monday, saying the bar is "one of the best" in Sheffield.
