SHEFFIELD United has announced plans to build 52 apartments on land behind a corner of its Bramall Lane ground.

The flats would be built at the end of John Street, behind the corner of the Kop and John Street stands.

In its application to Sheffield Council, the club proposes ‘erection of residential development to provide three and four-storey studio accommodation, comprising a total of 52 apartments with associated car parking’.

A total of 21 public bodies and other organisations have been consulted about the plans and not objected, but Sheffield Council has received three objections from members of the public.

Highfields resident Peter Toomey said: “One of the main concerns I would have is the noise from an additional development, as they seem to be aimed at students.

“We already get a high volume of noise from people walking home from nights out, shouting and using raised voices.

“The apartments may only compound the existing problem.”

Sheffield Council has not yet set a date for when a decision will be made on the scheme.
