Unit 2, 92 Burton Road, Neepsend, where plans for a new bar and restaurant have been submitted to Sheffield Council near Pete McKee's mural of Frank the whippet.

In a statement provided with the planning application, Urbana Town planning, on behalf of Slick Chicks, said it would provide seven new full-time jobs.

They said: “The proposals would provide an extension of the lively business and retail activity of the Kelham Island area into the Neepsend area.

“It would be a continuation of the vibrancy and vitality on show that began initially with Kelham Square moving through the Ball Street area on to Peddler Night Market and thus encourages development through the whole area rather than just focused on Kelham Island.

“Regeneration of this building will continue to grow the economic activity in the area.

“The proposals offer the best possible regeneration for the area considering the significant amount of residential development that has already been proposed and developed towards Neepsend.”
