Blenheim Architecture submitted proposals to Sheffield Council to turn Cow Mouth Farm, at 33 Hemsworth Road, opposite Graves Park, into four new two-bedroom apartments with car parking space.

The proposal consists of the removal and reconstruction of the roof in the same shape but with an increased ridge height with extension to the rear to form the homes.

The current farmhouse is used as a site cabin for the works adjacent at Park View Mews.

In their application form, Blenheim Architecture said there are currently two car parking spaces and they plan to increase this by five to seven in total.

So far, there are currently six comments from members of the public on the plans. Some of these state they are pleased to see the farmhouse redevelopment but have some concerns.

One objector, who lives on Park View Mews, said they own one of a couple of properties that are directly behind the farmhouse and would be most impacted by the development.

They said: “Whilst we are keen to see the farmhouse developed, we are opposed to gross over development. The plans submitted clearly indicate this would happen, in what is an already limited space.

“When we purchased our property, we ‘bought into’ an exclusive, quiet and private, cul-de-sac of 13 houses. It was indicated that the original proposal for the farmhouse was conversion to a single dwelling only.”
