    Such fantastic news. Imagine Sunlun in next 10 years. Hopefully transformed into a vibrant successful city and of course we're in the top echelons of football

    Was walking the new pallion road today and noticed there is a very large plot of land derelict between that and the road heading toward Q Alexandra bridge. Anyone know if it is reserved for housing / another investment? It’s a huge plot of lane and in a brilliant place for access to city + Wessington Way and A19

    It's a huge improvement on what was there before, but it's supposed to only be the start. The plan is to redevelop the north entrance where the big Poundland is to make that the "grand" entrance, as well as open up the other platform island and lengthen the platforms, getting back to 4 but also able to get the big intercity trains in. There's a suggestion that the shops where Costa, CEX, etc. in market Square are would go in the process, though that's not been confirmed.

    There’s a plan for the film studios to be on the Crown Works site as well s the Pallion Shipyard. There are also plans for a business park on the fallow land between the Shipyard and Deptford.

    The rest of the Edward Thompson buildings are to come down soon, along with a few others on Stobbart Street including Sizzlers. There's a compound on site at the old scrap yard for the HICSA and work is supposed to be ramping up on that soon. And proper construction work has started on the new footbridge, due to be completed in approximately 18 months, though a loose "summer 2025" completion date is out there for flexibility. It should be ready about the same time that the Stables open.

    I hope some investment can be found and extended to The National Glass Centre, which is in need of some TLC . This asset to the area should not be left to rot on the whim of some senior landgrabbers . imo.

    It's a difficult one, mate. Built by the TWDC a few "short cuts" were taken that were only found out about in the last few years when problems started appearing. But it means the costs to repair are pretty excessive, replacing the glass roof panels would cost more than it cost to build it. It's owned by the Uni, who can't afford the approximate £46 million repair bill unless they get outside help, but a lot of that's not forthcoming because various companies and bodies aren't keen on getting involved without some say in what goes on there. Also no one would buy it off the Uni unless it was massively discounted because of they'd not want the repair cost liabilities, especially if costs increase. The best hope is that a combination of the Council, the government, the Arts Council, heritage lottery funding and the Uni get a package together to fund the repair work. But getting that together can take time, especially grants from the lottery and Arts Council. You can bet, though, that if this was in London or Manchester, money would already be there for it.
