  12. Stag Works is again under threat from developers: this time they want to put flats on to Portland Works which backs onto Stag Works - and again they are not telling the truth about what goes on in Stag Works, please object. Background:Stag Works which backs on to Portland Works contains the largest largest concentration of music studios in the North of England and for 35 years has been at the heart of the music industry in Sheffield, earning the city tens of millions of pounds every year through royalties to Sheffield artists. From the Arctic Monkeys and Reverend and the Makers, back to Def Leppard, Stag Works has played host to many of the city's major music acts and acts as a nursery for growing the new music of Sheffield. Portland Works which backs onto Stag Works is in the centre of the John St Conservation Area, created because both buildings are 'the most significant and exemplary metal trades buildings in the city ' (part of the City Council bid for conservation status). Portland Works is a thriving, 140 year old centre for small mainly metal and wood craft based businesses, one of the last bases in Sheffield for its renowned 'little mesters'. It also houses art and music studios. The tenants of Portland Works are proud artists craft people and have no desire to lose their life long work and be booted out to create yet more tiny flats. As with the last planning application to build flats near Stag Works, the developer has misrepresented what goes on in Stag Works claiming that the only studios in Stag Works are on the front facing John St: totally missing the fact that there are currently around 14 studios in Stag Works and they are distributed around all 4 sides of the building. There is a reggae studio run by a drummer backing directly onto Portland Works, busy studios (including the studio used by Reverend & The Makers) on the ground and first floors at the Portland Works end of the wing on the right hand side of Stag Works(facing Portland Works) and another reggae sound system in the top floor of the left hand wing near to Portland Works. If the flat building goes ahead the complaints will come in and Stag Works' vital contribution to the city's profile and economy would be destroyed; as will the spirit and character of this amazing part of Sheffield. Find out more by going to the Council's Planning Applications site, use the reference 08/01850/ful to find the planning application for Portland Works and lodge your objection . And let me know what you think.
