As we have written about previously, work on the Sheffield Local Plan has picked up again and the Council are currently undertaking their call for sites. This opened on 16 December 2019 and will run until 31 January 2020. The last call for sites took place in 2014 as part of the Citywide Options for Growth consultation and this is a good opportunity to put new sites forward to the Council for consideration.
If your site was submitted to the Council as part of the 2014 consultation we advise resubmitting it as part of the current call for sites to ensure the Council fully consider it as part of the Local Plan.
If you have a site that hasn’t been submitted to the Council before and would like to know if it is suitable for inclusion in the Local plan the please do get in touch.
The call for sites is one of the early stages of identifying the how and where the city will grow. Whilst there is a strong emphasis on providing housing for the city, the call for sites isn’t limited to housing sites. The Council will be looking at development in Sheffield as a whole and therefore, in addition to housing, the call for sites is relevant to areas for the following development;
- gypsies and travellers
- travelling showpeople
- community and recreational use
As planning consultants based in Sheffield, we work closely with Sheffield City Council Planning Department and can advise on the suitability of sites for inclusion within the Local Plan. If you want to talk about submitting a site to the Council for consideration, please contact Michael Bamford via email on Michael.firstname.lastname@example.org or call the office on 0114 221 0618.
