The public consultation on Meadowhall’s massive £300m expansion is taking place this week.
People can see detailed plans and express their views at the shopping centre this Friday and Saturday.
Earlier this month The Star revealed that the development – which promises to create 1,000 jobs – was ‘one of the largest investments’ in Sheffield for a decade.
Comprising 330,000 sq ft of space, the new ‘Leisure Hall’ promises to add a range of dining and entertainment experiences not presently available at the centre.
Restaurants, a state-of-the-art cinema, a new food court, gym, and other leisure space that could be used to offer everything from ten-pin bowling to indoor golf are all planned for the development. The grand scheme is the concept of British Land, joint owner of Meadowhall.
Darren Pearce, Meadowhall centre director, said: “This is a very exciting era for Meadowhall. The proposed Leisure Hall is designed to give our shoppers ever more choice and variety. We hope that many will share their views and thoughts during the public consultation in June, ahead of the planning application, enabling us to maintain Meadowhall as Yorkshire’s premier shopping and leisure destination.”
Charles Maudsley, of British Land, said: “We are continuing to drive Meadowhall’s evolution to ensure it remains an outstanding place for modern consumer lifestyles.”
