Plans for next phase of Park Hill revealed

The joint venture partners responsible for the ongoing transformation of Park Hill will host a public consultation on 29th February, allowing the local community to feedback on plans for the next phase of homes.

Award-winning regeneration company Urban Splash and Places for People – the UK’s largest social enterprise – have redeveloped the building over the past decade and to date, have created 455 new homes, accommodation for 356 students, and more than 50,000 sq ft of workspace, anchored within extensive landscaping and green space.

The proposed fifth phase offers more new green spaces, as well as 105 new homes – some of them affordable. The one-, two-, three- and four-bedroomed properties will be a range of flats, duplexes and townhouses.

Plans for the ground floor include 2,000 sq ft of commercial space providing a platform for independent, local businesses, adding to the already vibrant and diverse Park Hill ecosystem – which is already home to South Street Kitchen, The Pearl, and the Grace Owen Nursery.

Steve Thomas, development manager for Park Hill said: “As we move through the final chapters of Park Hill we are delighted to expand on our vision.

“For almost two decades we have nurtured this community, creating something that Sheffield can be proud of. We are confident that these new plans will further contribute to the area’s cultural and economic vitality.”

The news follows the partners’ application for the fourth phase of Park Hill in 2023. Subject to planning conditions, proposals were approved for 125 apartments – 20 per cent of which will be affordable – with work set to start on-site this spring. The approved designs also comprise new public realm, EV charging, a car club and bike storage.

The consultation will take place on Thursday 29 February at the garage space at Pat Midgley Lane from 2pm to 7pm.
