Plans to convert a derelict Crosspool pub into a seven bedroom house will be considered by the council planning board on Tuesday.
The Bell Hagg Inn on Manchester Road has stood empty for years but the new proposals would see the two buildings turned into a single dwelling and extended. A two-story structure would also be demolished. Planning officers are recommending that the new scheme is approved.
Loxley Valley Protection Society is critical of the plans, but Rivelin Conservation Group has welcomed the proposal.
The former pub is located opposite the entrance to Valleyside Garden Centre, and its position offers commanding views over the Rivelin valley.
