Two Sheffield pubs to be knocked down in separate plans

Plans to demolish two Sheffield pubs to make way for new developments have been submitted to the city 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 Tramways Hotel, on London Road, could also be pulled down by bulldozers if separate plans get the go ahead.

Documents submitted to the council say it has been closed for over 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.
