Wedding and shisha venue gets approval

A wedding venue and shisha lounge will be created on a Sheffield industrial estate after planners gave proposals the go ahead.

The change of use for TRC Truck Rental on Dannemore Drive, Darnall, will enable ceremonies to be held there despite objections from nearby business owners regarding the extra traffic and access. 
Sheffield Council’s planning committee heard that the number of guests would be limited to 240 and most of the activity would take place in the evening, when other businesses had closed, although some councillors argued that it should be kept for industrial use.

Others also questioned how guests would be protected from second hand smoke but offers said it was not a planning matter.

A spokesman for the applicant said it was ‘a good opportunity for investment in the Darnall area’ on a site away from homes.
