Sensation Day Services plans to change vacant offices at Suite 1, Churchills, Thorncliffe Business Park on Newton Chambers Road, into a day care centre for adults with physical and learning disabilities.

The centre is proposed to run from Monday to Saturdays, 8am to 6pm, with capacity for 15 users who will be looked after by four employees.

If the plans are approved by Sheffield Council, there will be six designated car parking spaces for the centre in an existing car park.
