Sheffield Housing Company is seeking permission to build 101 properties on land around Collinson Road, Adrian Crescent, Launce Road, Southey Green Road and Buchanan Road, Southey Green.

A design and access statement said the application was "part of a wider programme of development and regeneration across Sheffield" following similar schemes in Shirecliffe and Norfolk Park.

The homes will be spread across seven plots of land and include 34 two-bedroom, 51 three-bedroom and 16 four-bedroom terraced and semi-detached properties..

Papers submitted to Sheffield City Council said: "In developing its proposals, the Sheffield Housing Company has carefully considered the wider Southey, Owlerton area."

The design and access statement also said residents had raised a number of concerns about the proposals, including concerns about parking during drop-off and pick-up times for Southey Green Primary School.

One neighbour said he was concerned about crime and anti-social behaviour in the area.

He said: "I only object if the new homes are going to be social housing. I don't object if they are to be used for private housing. Parson Cross and Southey Green is known for its social problems and making more social housing will only make things worse.

"It would be nice to be able to walk the streets around here at night again without any fear. Police numbers are down and crime will increase, going forward, private housing will be most beneficial for Parson Cross and Southey Green area."

People living in the area have until January 30 to make their views known.
