The developer behind plans to knock down a working men’s club and build apartments in its place has promised to put more than £100,000 towards affordable housing.
More than 500 people objected to Spandrel Homes’ application to demolish Holme Lea club in Handsworth and build 27 apartments.
But despite concerns about an increase in air pollution and the loss of a valued community facility, the majority of Sheffield Council’s planning committee voted to grant planning permission in November.
The firm has since been discussing its contributions under the Section 106 scheme, which requires developers to contribute sums of money towards things like play areas and infrastructure.
Any development with 15 homes or more must include a contribution towards affordable housing, and the council said it wanted Spandrel Homes to agree to pay £130,325.
