An application for a 24 hour alcohol licence at a proposed boutique hotel in Sheffield are being opposed by neighbours.

Sheffield University, which wants to redevelop the former Halifax halls of residence on Endcliffe Vale Road, Broomhill, will have its application considered at a meeting of Sheffield Council’s licensing board on Thursday.

Residents of The Glen flats and Endcliffe Vale Lessees have objected.

Margaret Morgan, Endcliffe Vale Lessees chairman, said: “We so not think it reasonable that a hotel should be licensed to sell alcohol for consumption at any time on any day.”

Residents are also unhappy about potential ‘inappropriate behaviour’ from patrons, along with ‘noise and disturbance’.

The objections also relate to an open air balcony.

Protesters say they would prefer the building was converted into offices.
