Supermarket giant refused permission to bulldoze old Sheffield pub

Have your say

Plans to demolish a Sheffield pub and replace it with a supermarket have been rejected.

Sainsbury’s had applied for permission for the scheme on the site of The Bradway Hotel, Bradway Road.

Sheffield Council’s planning board voted against a recommendation by planning officers to approve the scheme - with councillors saying the design was of ‘poor character and quality’.

Dore and Totley councillor Joe Otten, whose ward includes Bradway, said: “Sainsbury’s have retained the facades of converted historic pubs in other locations.

“I now hope we can find a solution for the Bradway Hotel site, which actually works for our area.”

Sainsbury’s has been granted permission to convert the old Hadfield Hotel, Crookesmoor, into a convenience store.
