New plans have been submitted to Sheffield City Council for a mixed-use development of residential and commercial units on the site of a former cutlery works in Sheffield.
Citu, supported by ID Planning, has submitted an application for development on the Richardsons Cutlery Works site on Alma Street in Kelham Island.
Planning permission is sought for a mixed-use development of 115 residential properties and two commercial units, one of which is earmarked for a bar or restaurant while the second would be flexible to support office, retail or bar use.
The residential element would comprise one, two, three and four-bedroom units, with a mix of apartments and houses.
A planning statement submitted as part of the application said: "The proposal would result in the redevelopment of a vacant brownfield site and features an attractive and innovative design which incorporates a wide range of sustainability measures, providing significant environmental benefits and creating a contemporary and sustainable addition to Kelham Island."
The application site was formerly occupied by the Richardson’s cutlery business and associated industrial, warehouse and office buildings, which have since been demolished. It is located to the south of Globe Steel Works, Alms houses and Alma Street, and adjacent to the grade II-listed Fat Cat pub.
Planning consent was previously granted in 2015 for a mixed-use development featuring 98 flats on the site.
