A Grade-II listed former town hall and court in Sheffield looks set to be transformed into a new hotel after the proposal was put forward for approval by officials.
Urbana Town Planning, on behalf of the building’s owner Aestrom OTH, submitted an application to Sheffield City Council in August 2019 for the refurbishment and restoration of the Old Town Hall.
The plan includes the creation of 12 ‘pod’ hotel rooms in the rear cell block of the former court, while the former law courts, judges’ offices and another block would be converted into 12 serviced apartments.
A ‘souk’ style marketplace also forms part of the proposal.
The plan has been recommended for approval with a final decision set to be made on December 17.
The building, which was first constructed in 1808, has been left unoccupied for the past two decades.
