. They are: Jam Art Works (original prints), Yoki (Korean street food), Urban Slice (pizzas), Hide (events), Re-Owned (pre-owned clothing), Get Wurst (German street food) and Cake & Craft (bakes). The project was led by the council and Steel Yard, a Sheffield based shipping container specialist, using £446,000 from the Get Britain Building fund. Delays The project was due to open ahead of the Women’s Euros but it was partly delayed when Yorkshire Water raised concerns about it damaging the sewers. Yorkshire Water – which was not consulted – said the original plans approved by the council could pose risk to one of the biggest sewers in Sheffield and harm the sewer network. The council and Yorkshire Water eventually came to an agreement after the local authority put forward new proposals moving the entire structure approximately 1.3 m to the right.
The containers have arrived in Fargate
This will not change the layout, quantity or look of the containers and the cost was unaffected, according to the council. Updated plans did not require new planning permission, the local authority said, because approval was granted for the whole area at the top of Fargate. A council spokesperson added: “Nothing has changed about what’s already been approved for the containers. It’s the same development delivered in the same way, but just located slightly to the right of where it was initially planned.” Read next: Amazon shoppers urged to check small-print as people hit with £32 charge Get breaking news by email by signing up to our newsletters Yorkshire car salesman who has allegedly been a 'serious criminal' agrees to hand over £1.14m Tragedy as woman's body pulled from water in Horbury as police issue statement Huddersfield's BBC Apprentice winner Harpreet confirms she is opening a new bakery in Bradford
