PLANS for a new multi-storey health clinic in Sheffield have run into opposition from residents and parish councillors.

Developers want to build a new ‘polyclinic’ comprising a GP surgery, pharmacy and car park on a vacant site off Station Road in Chapeltown.

Sheffield Council planning officers have backed the scheme.

Officers have advised councillors to grant outline planning permission when they meet next Tuesday.

But members of Ecclesfield Parish Council are unconvinced about the merits of the project.

The parish council is objecting to the proposals on the grounds of limited access and traffic problems in the area.

They also point out the site has been flooded in the past.

And five residents living near the scheme have added their objections to the plans.

In a report to be considered by the Sheffield west and north planning board, officers said developers had satisfactorily addressed concerns about traffic and flooding.
