Views sought for Sheffield brewery site’s future

Developer Capital&Centric has launched a consultation as it forms plans to develop the Cannon Brewery, formerly home to Stones.

As outlined by C&C co-founder Adam Higgins to Place Yorkshire in April, the firm envisages a scheme that will make the most of the site’s heritage features and make serious inroads into the city’s desire to add to its breadth of city centre living options.

Up to 500 homes could be delivered at the 4.2-acre site.

In addition to the now-live online consultation pages, a drop-in event will be held with Heist Brew Co on Neepsend Lane on Friday 12 May from 4pm til late.

Capital&Centric is currently featuring in Channel 4’s The Big Interiors Battle at its Eyewitness Works development, also in Sheffield. The Cannon site has been empty since Stones ceased production at the site in 1999.

C&C said it intends to “breathe life into the whole area, creating a buzzing and diverse neighbourhood with new homes, lush green community spaces, bars, cafes and workspaces that could see hundreds of million invested in the Neepsend area”.

The developer said its Kampus garden neighbourhood in Manchester, completed in April 2022, offers insight into what it can deliver on such sites.

Tim Heatley, co-founder, said: “Cannon Brewery is a vast area that’s laid empty for years, just crying out for some vision. Whilst we take a design-led approach to all the communities we deliver – no two are the same – whatever we bring forward must be made in Sheffield’s identity and be a worthy addition to the city as its grows.

“What better way to do that than to get people and businesses involved from the very outset. Before we submit any firmed up plan to the city council, we want to understand what the city’s residents would like to see there and canvass ideas that we can take on board.”

The initial consultation period will run until 22 May.
