Fears of extra noise raised over late hours applications

Have your say

CONTROVERSIAL bids are being made for late opening at two Sheffield bars.

Owners of The York, Fulwood Road, Broomhill, want to open half an hour later each night, until midnight Sundays to Thursdays, and 1am on Fridays, Saturdays and some Sundays.

Objections have come from residents’ group BANG, plus five people living nearby.

Opponents said later opening would worsen existing problems which cause ‘significant disturbance’.

One letter read: “Broomhill is not the same as Division Street and should not be allowed to become so.”

Meanwhile, owners of the bar at Tiger Works, West Street, want to extend the current 12.30am closing time each day to 1.30am Sundays to Wednesdays and 2.30am Thursdays to Saturdays.

Coun Rob Murphy, who represents Central Ward is objecting on noise grounds.

The York application is recommended for refusal, but planning officers say Tiger Works’ should be approved.

Decisions on both applications will be made by Sheffield Council’s planning board on Monday.
