Sky-House coming to north Sheffield

PLANS for the redevelopment of Stocksbridge landmark The Peggy Tub have been approved by Sheffield Council.

Following extensive discussions with the team at Coda Planning - experts in the development of residential projects throughout the country - city planners approved proposals for the redevelopment of the former social club in New Road, Stocksbridge.

The once popular venue finally closed in 2015, the victim of changing times and drinking habits.

Architects at award-winning Sheffield multi disciplinary practice CODA Studios have created the latest phase of the acclaimed Sky-House concept specifically for the site, which is close to the acclaimed Fox Valley retail development.

Sky-House’s 21st century take on back-to-back housing creates sensitively dense, beautiful and naturally eco-friendly homes complete with their signature roof gardens, terraces and expansive windows. 

“We have been overwhelmed by the phenomenal response to Sky-House and delighted at the way the concept is now spreading throughout South Yorkshire,” said Sky-House Co co-founder David Cross.

“Sky-House is already coming to the former British Tissues site in Oughtibridge and we are really pleased to see this second smaller site in Stocksbridge has now been approved.

“Before work even begins we have already had more than 60 enquiries about this Stocksbridge development.

“We believe this is the best possible use for the site, bringing much needed new housing stock for this growing and increasingly popular north Sheffield community.”
