On behalf of Sheffield Utd Football Club, Zerum prepared and submitted a Reserved Matters Planning Application for redevelopment and extension to the existing South Stand at Bramhall Lane.
The original consent granted in 2009 was obtained as part of the World Cup bid being submitted by England. The design reflected the aspiration for the World Cup bid. In the intervening period the design has been reviewed and in particular the structural elements have been considered in more detail. The new design picks up on these elements of the South Stand forming a critical component to the current design.
During the intervening period since the 2009 consent the requirement for FIFA World Cup related accommodation is no longer necessary. Consequently, the design has taken the opportunity to also reconfigure the internal arrangements to provide enhanced disabled facilities within the stand.
The aspiration for the new south stand is to create a stand which will become a long-standing embodiment of the Club’s values and the history of the city of Sheffield.
Zerum provided all planning advice in relation to the redevelopment of the South Stand, including preparation and submission of the planning application, and management of the application through to determination.
