Well done to CITU, who are developing Green Lane Works, for looking after the spectacular gateway arch which has just been added to the English Heritage Risk Register. (“Heritage At Risk register add South Yorkshire buildings” 10th October). “Little Kelham” is a flagship eco development and will help transform Kelham Island. People love living in this quiet, former industrial area with some of the country’s best real ale pubs. But housing options have been mainly limited to 1 and 2 bedroom apartments. Now Little Kelham will offer 107 houses while there is planning application to build 49 houses on the Richardsons pay car park site opposite the Fat Cat. And another application proposes to turn the former Bulls Head Hotel (more recently occupied by Ellis, Willis & Beckett) on Dun Street into a nursery. Collectively they will bring families with children into the area and offer options to current residents who want to start a family.
