Sheffield Civic Trust is holding a Design Review

Sheffield Civic Trust is holding a Design Review to test and evaluate opinions and issues raised by two new planning proposals brought forward by the University of Sheffield.

The two schemes we will review are the proposed new social sciences building and the plan for a new Goodwin Sports Centre.

Plans have been submitted for a new four-storey social sciences building on Whitham Road in Broomhill, opposite Weston Park Hospital on land currently used as university sports pitches. If approved the new building will bring together three departments to create a new social sciences facility that the university says will enable improved interdisciplinary activities. Alongside this, plans have been submitted to build a new Goodwin Sports Centre. This will be built on its current site on Northumberland Road, also in Broomhill, and will update the ageing university sports facility.

The Design Review will be held at 6.30pm on Wednesday 19 April 2017, at The Circle in Sheffield city centre (33 Rockingham Lane, S1 4FW | Map).  

Please come along to share your opinions about the two schemes and to find out more about the proposals. The university and the schemes’ architects have been invited to join us on the 19th to present information about the proposals and answer questions .
