PLANS to extend serving hours at a pub in an upmarket Sheffield suburb have hit a major obstacle.
City planners have recommended that councillors refuse permission for The York in Broomhill to stay open an hour later.
Pub managers Forum Cafe Bars Ltd - who also run The Forum next to Devonshire Green - applied to extend opening hours at the Fulwood Road pub to 12.30am during the week and 1.30am on Friday and Saturday night.
Six residents have written letters of support for the proposal - describing a ‘family friendly’ pub ‘at the heart of the community’.
But 53 neighbours and Broomhill Action Neighbourhood Group have opposed the plan.
Councillors, who have the final say on the plans, will meet to discuss the proposals next Monday.
