Zerum provided all planning advice in relation to the redevelopment of the South Stand at Bramhall Lane, including preparation and submission of the Reserved Matters planning application and management of the application through to determination.
- The original consent granted in 2009 was obtained as part of the World Cup bid being submitted by England.
- The design was subsequently reviewed and the new design focused on the structural elements of the South Stand.
- The need for FIFA World Cup related accommodation was also no longer necessary and so the design took the opportunity to reconfigure the internal arrangement to provide enhanced disabled facilities.
- The aspiration for the new south stand was to create a stand which would become a long-standing embodiment of the Club’s values and the history of the city of Sheffield.
