Council approves plan for extra homes on Parson Cross estate
A developer has been granted permission to put more houses on a planned estate in Parson Cross.
Gleeson Developments already had planning consent for 64 homes on the site of the former Parson Cross College off Monteney Road, as part of a larger estate that also includes land off Remington Road.
But Sheffield Council has now allowed the developer to change its plans and instead put up 79 houses.
Gleeson had initially wanted to build four bedroom properties, but revised the design to include a mix of two and three bed homes instead.
The proposed road layout and landscaping will be largely as previously approved.
Approving the new plans, council planning officers said: “The density of development is considered to be appropriate for this location and the proposal would not adversely impact upon the amenity of existing residents.”
The Remington Road site is already being developed.
