Masterplanning & Mixed Use
Sheffield City Centre
Sheffield City Council
The New Era Square development is a major new urban destination in the heart of Sheffield. It will provide 694 student bedrooms in three buildings with a central plaza surrounded by retail and international restaurants and bars. There will also be business accommodation including offices and conference space.
The central plaza will form a key pedestrian and social link connecting the already vibrant area of London Road with the city centre. The square will operate night and day with café seating and open-air events.
We prepared a detailed transport assessment and travel plans to support the successful planning application for this mixed-use scheme.
To facilitate the delivery of the central plaza at the heart of the project, a stopping up order was needed to accompany the planning application. A number of service areas also had to be accommodated with access by different vehicle types. The routing of service vehicles, and their impact on on-street car parking was given detailed consideration as part of our work, as was the management of a basement level car park.
