Sheffield heritage site to be transformed into independent business park

A Yorkshire science park company has announced that it will be transforming a Sheffield heritage site into a new destination for independent businesses.

Sheffield Science Park Company (SSPCo), has had its bid selected by Sheffield City Council to work on Leah’s Yard, a former 19th Century mesters works and heritage building.

The site will become a new destination for local independent businesses, socialising and enterprising combining a full mixed experience for visitors and users of the building. Plans also include creative workshops as well as creative spaces for Sheffield’s independent business scene.

Once fully refurbished, Leah’s Yard will feature a collection of local traders within ground floor studios, with spaces on upper floors to accommodate small businesses.

Tom Wolfenden, CEO of SSPCo, commented: “Sheffield is home to so many extremely talented people who develop incredible products, but they rarely reside in the city centre.

“Our vision for Leah’s Yard is to bring all that together in one place and provide these businesses with a literal shop window and an affordable route into the city centre.

“We will create a genuine independent community here, and as part of the Leah’s Yard package, tenants will have access to business support and advice from our creative and experienced professional team as well.”
