The new retail quarter

Have your say

Having looked closely at the proposals for the NRQ some key issues are becoming clearer. The Tap and Tankard and Chubby’s, 24-26 West Street, are under threat of demolition.

Losing them leaves Leah’s Yard looking isolated, while the Grade 2 Bethel Sunday School, what will be left of it, will be totally overawed by the new development, possibly on the scale of the Town Hall and City Lofts.

There has been welcome if belated interest in Sheffield pubs of historic and architectural importance by Sheffield Camra recently.

Here is an issue for consideration.

What is overwhelmingly clear is how poorly the proposals have been portrayed by way of graphic and detail in the Sheffield media.
