Sheffield Council’s City Centre, South and East Planning and Highways Area Board agreed to hold a site visit to land formerly occupied by the Darnall Medical Aid Society charity, at the junction of Fisher Lane and Ronald Road.

Developers want to build a block of apartments, and three houses with garages.

A previous application, withdrawn in May, for 12 apartments and parking led to a 169-name petition of protest.

The latest application has led to three letters of objection, as well as a letter from Attercliffe MP Clive Betts, raising concerns from a local constituent.

Sheffield Council planning officers are recommending the plan be approved, subject to a number of conditions.
