Concerns raised over flats scheme near Sheffield woods

Have your say

Residents fear plans to turn a house near Sheffield’s Ecclesall Woods into apartments will be ‘out of character’ with the area.

They have objected to the outline plans for the development on Ryecroft Glen Road, a cul-de-sac off Dore Road, Dore, on the ground of traffic, noise and parking concerns.

Planning officers said there is no evidence as to ‘how the use of the site for continued residential use will cause such issues’.

The scheme, which has been amended in its layout and car parking, are recommended for approval.
