Promoting development in the Sheffield City Region Advanced Manufacturing Innovation District / Global Innovation Corridor

Our role 

  • Following original outline permission approval in 2007, we have been retained to provide ongoing advice in respect of the development’s delivery.
  • This included varying planning conditions attached to the original planning permission, to offer more flexibility to enable the scheme to be delivered in the context of very challenging economic circumstances.
  • We provided advice and secured permission for associated approvals pursuant in respect of the delivery of various phases of this development over a 10-year period. We worked collaboratively with both councils, statutory consultees and key stakeholders.
  • Provided wider support on interface with the Advanced Manufacturing Innovation District (AMID) steering group and its members, and input into infrastructure and other funding bids.
  • Promoted part of the site through the Local Plan to secure removal from the Green Belt, and subsequently secured outline permission for further employment floorspace on this part of the site.

Sheffield Business Park


  • We have also secured detailed permission for initial phases of development, a new distribution unit targeted at a national named operator, and now a Local Infrastructure Funded application to bring forward a prepared site.
  • Secured flexible permissions, most recently an outline permission aimed at the advanced manufacturing supply chain, including an extended period for implementation (10 years). We negotiated away requests for substantial financial contributions and ensured that the scheme was not tied to restrictive parameters.
  • Removed restrictive conditions / controls and extended the life of previous permissions.
  • Sheffield Business Park contributes to the wider success of the AMID, the Global Innovation Corridor and the pre-eminent role of South Yorkshire in the advanced manufacturing and innovation sectors. The ability to deliver further floorspace will enhance its future role.
  • Site area: 7.43 ha
  • Floorspace: 276,000 sq ft
