TWO metal signs have finally been erected on the side of Leopold Square in Sheffield to direct visitors towards the city centre complex of restaurants and bars.

The signs, each five metres long and weighing 3.5 tonnes, hang next to the square’s entrances on Leopold Street and on West Street, opposite the City Hall tram stop. They took 10 days to install due to their weight.

Ever since the £25m scheme was completed four years ago at the site of the former Sheffield Technical School, developers have been in close discussions with planning and conservation officers to ensure any external signs would be sensitive to the listed buildings.

Mike Melvin from Ask Developments said: “It has been a long process but it was important the council was happy with the final result.”
