A proposed £43m development designed to help put Sheffield at the forefront of hi-tech, advanced manufacturing and research is all set for the green light this month.

The University of Sheffield is in line for council permission for a ‘factory of the future’ at Sheffield Business Park, off the Parkway, with the prospect of 160 construction and 75 permanent jobs, but with much wider economic benefits to the region, running to many hundreds of jobs.

It aims to build on the success of the original Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre on the other side of the Parkway, at Catcliffe.
