We have objected to planning application 22/01163/FUL for Lidl at St Mary’s Gate
proposals. There are five design issues we wish to highlight to officers and members.
This is concerning the significant detrimental impact the proposed development will
cause on a key section of Sheffield’s walking and cycling network, the Cycle Ring Route.
The Sheffield Cycle Ring Route is an important part of the active travel network and
must be protected & upgraded accordingly.
We also have concerns about the impact on the Transforming Cities Funded “Nether
Edge Cycle Route” as part of Connecting Sheffield.
The main issues are as follows:
- Cycle Ring Road crossing of site access at Eyre Street
- Cycle Parking
- Impact on South Lane Pedestrians
- South Lane – existing Zebra crossing & lack of drop kerb
- Planning Statement Error
