Well Chesterfields part of east mids, but its nearer to sheffield so which are should it be ?

It never going to get into BIG league of 100m+
The crooked spire is probably the tallest it will get. But several areas are to be redeveloped. The former Dema Glass site being the most prominent, due to have the new football stadium and leisure or retail adjacent to it.

The site is now cleared ready.

So ??? is East midlands or Sheffield.

Hi guys

Didn't realise you had your own forum now.

I'm an old Shepshed lad (any towers propsed? )
moved to Manchester several years ago but miss the place.

I was wondering why there are no threads on Loughborough? It's a big enough place surely? It's certaintly developed a lot since i was living in the area.

Without wanting to have a battle over Chesvegas, it is surely more closely linked to the Sheffield City Region than anywhere else?

I have many friends in Chesterfield and they ALL work in Sheffield, along with the S postcode, Radio Sheffield being its BBC station, the Sheffield based newspaper that has a circulation in Chezzy, shared local sporting leagues etc.. maybe I'm wrong?

danzo13 you seem like a nice person but ur statistics are all wrong,

leicester is a larger city than notts in population - fact

leicestershire is larger in population than nottinghamshire - fact

stick to the official facts and figures given by census and government sources, dont make up your own

Leicster is bigger than Manchester - FACT (according to official censor figures)

However it may not be bigger than Manchester,Salford,Trafford (greater Manchester). Ludicrous system where MCC don't even have power over Salford

anyway, that's not for here

Not seen any plans for towers in Shepshed yet!

Loughborough is definitely a big enough place to warrant a thread or two. I know they are expanding the Science Park there and large firms have a presence in the town.

There is an almost unbroken urban built-up area between north Leicester and Loughborough. Give or take a few fields. If we don't see a Loughborough thread soon, I might start adding some and incorporating them into the Leicester Projects index?

The presence of Loughborough University is a massive plus for the town and may even get them some heavy involvement in the 2012 Olympics...

Exactly! Nottingham has places JUST OUTSIDE the city centre,...literally... no more than half a mile from the city centre that don't fall under the city council boundaries! ridiculous

I didn't say it was in Sheffield either? I said I always assumed I was in sheffield? Like.. When I pass the spire...im in sheffield within minutes... so I used to think the spire was part of sheffield...or its suburbs

I live 200 yards from the Leicester city boundary, in a town with a population of 12,000 and we are not included in the Leicester Urban Area.

So when LCC want to create a masterplan to improve Leicester they have to ignore your town. I guess also that when LCC get their funds from central government they get less than they really should because some of it goes directly to your town. That's ok in some respects but it also means that LCC have less financial clout for the big projects and schemes that can really make a difference.

The thing about Leicester is, it's slap bang in the centre of its county and thus doesn't have many towns close enough by (bar Wigston and Oadby which are literally joined to the city, though have their own local authority).

Rushcliffe has a population of 100,000.... and isnt included

Gedling had 111,800 in 1991.... cant find any more recent stats
