Public inquiry clears £10m British Land Next store

British Land’s plans for a Next Home and Garden store at Meadowhall, Sheffield, have overcome a planning refusal from the local council and will now go ahead as part of a £300m development.

The £10m planned store on derelict land was refused planning permission by Sheffield Council.

However, the Planning Inspectorate overturned the decision, leaving British Land free to proceed “as soon as possible” on the site.

The project is now set for completion by the end of 2014.

In a statement, British Land said: “We are delighted that the Planning Inspector has agreed with our appeal and granted planning permission, following the recent public inquiry.

“We look forward to bringing more jobs and much-needed investment to this part of Sheffield. British Land is committed to Sheffield and its future and will continue to support retail development, employment and investment in this dynamic and vibrant city.”
