Hydro electric power scheme

Have your say

HYDRO electric power is set to be generated as part of redevelopment plans for a former industrial site in Sheffield.

Proposals for the former Green Lane Works, on Green Lane, Shalesmoor, involve creating an ‘energy centre’ beside the River Don, which would generate electricity.

Developers of the project have asked Sheffield Council for permission to alter the timescale and order of the scheme, so it can be built in phases.

The plans involve 107 new homes, conversion of the listed former Eagle Works to form a shop or restaurant, and creation of a base for artists.
