Meadowhall will drop its objection to an Ikea in Sheffield if changes are made to roads near the proposed site – and has even offered to pay for some of the work itself.

The home furnishings giant wants to build a £60 million store on the old Tinsley Wire site, off Sheffield Road in Carbrook.

Meadowhall’s owner MSC Property first expressed concern over the scheme last August on traffic grounds and the shopping centre has opposed the development ever since – despite Ikea carrying out fresh transport studies and the Highways Agency offering no objection.
