Housing plan set for approval

Have your say

A DISUSED former games court is to be turned into housing despite objections.

Six people have complained to Sheffield Council about the proposals for the site on Hammerton Road, Hillsborough, next to the 393 club.

The proposals involve six houses in a single block, and are to be considered at a meeting of Sheffield Council’s west and north planning board on Wednesday, January 2.

Objections focus mainly on a lack of parking and the impact of extra traffic. But Sheffield Council said housing is acceptable in the area.
