Plans are lodged to pull down two pubs

Plans to demolish two pubs to make way for new developments have been submitted to Sheffield Council.

The Elm Tree, on City Road, will be knocked down as part of plans to build a petrol filling station and jet wash facility.

Plans were submitted last week and one comment of support has been received from a resident who says it has ‘no architectural’ importance.

The former Tramway Hotel, on London Road, could also be pulled down if separate plans get the go ahead.

Documents submitted to the council say it has been closed for more than eight years, ‘is never going to reopen’ and the building is ‘dilapidated’.

The owner is preparing a masterplan for the building and other nearby sites, they add.

According to the application, bulldozers are set to move in to pull down the old Tramway Hotel in February.
