Change of use of office building to enable hotel operation
We secured the approval of consent for the change of use of a vacant office unit (B1(a)) to C1 Hotel use – in only 6 weeks. The unit was in an edge of centre location, in a popular and vibrant area of Sheffield.
We were able to demonstrate that the use would be complimentary, not only to the building in which it would be located, but also to the wider area which included a host of tourism and leisure related attractions. The operating model for the hotel was also “non-traditional” adopting main innovative features and being closely linked to the operation of existing JORO Restaurant in Kelham Island.
