I wish, but it's been established by the application for Calder's Yard that there will be no tall buildings permitted as this is within the sight lines of looking down Grainger Street.Yea it looks very good. The land behind would then be ripe for something taller to step up the bank
This post by Den 86 Now states that a planning application was submitted to Newcastle city council on Monday 13th December There is a new render from pottery lane and it looks excellent. Perhaps Den86 would like to post the render as he was the first with the post. cheersNot sure if this has been posted before but found some news/renders from Olympian homes website on the Forth yards site south of Pottery lane.

"No, sir, I do not bite my thumb at you, sir, but I bite my thumb, sir."South of Pottery Lane has grown into an attractive birch woodland. We remember it as Browns Foundry Yard - or similar. The ground is probably contaminated and should remain as urban woodland. When the young trees are cleared - probably en masse - there will be no protestors. Nobody will complain.
Quote "It's not jagged roofs or nice brick textures that create great places to live, it's the differences of activity and people that does. NCC planning keep letting us down". In the country the trees would attract deer and fungi. Better to clear fell and forget them!
