Housing scheme set for approval

Proposals to redevelop two parcels off Catherine Street, Burngreave, for 16 homes for the Arches Housing Association are in line for council approval next Tuesday.

The sites, divided by Brotherton Street, were formerly occupied by terraced houses and flats.

Council officers say although the scheme’s design is “not ideal”, this is “outweighed by the overall benefits of regeneration in this part of Burngreave”.
