Sheffield student homes plan is agreed

Have your say

A new development for hundreds of students was given the green light yesterday.

Councillors agreed the proposal to build one block with 535 student bed spaces and a separate building with 73 apartments on two pieces of land that straddle Unstone Street, close to Bramall Lane.

The report to councillors said that students would be housed in ‘pod units’ and there would also be office space on site.

Although there are just four car parking spaces, there are 102 bike parking spots and residents will be encouraged to use public transport.
