Channel 4 HQ - Sheffield

Recommended Posts

 

How much would property values increase if channel 4 decides to come here?

 

Probably not at all. 300 jobs is a very small number. Some would re-locate yes, but some would be new recruits from the area or beyond.

Didn't expect Sheffield to get it.

 

Leeds has made it to the shortlist of places where Channel 4 could move its national HQ, it's been announced.

Meanwhile, Sheffield has been shortlisted as a possible Creative hub

Sheffield is competing against Belfast, Brighton, Newcastle-Gateshead, Nottingham and Stoke-on-Trent to be the location of a 'creative hub'. I'm not sure if there will be more than one?

It's pretty obvious you can't locate something like that somewhere where there's no airport and HS2 will be bypassing.

 

You need a transport infrastructure for staff and guess to be able to get in and out quickly

Not too surprising is it?

 

Sheffield is hardly a City on the move at the moment, is it?!

 

Because the Government don't give two hoot's about it, the council are clueless, and the residents are reluctant to any sort of change. Never mind.

No-one has yet said what that really means in this context.

Its a bit chicken and egg - businesses may not want to locate here due to no airport or HS2 as noted by another poster, but why spend money on adding that infrastructure when Sheffield is less important for the economy than Manchester/Leeds?

Plus the not-so-trendy status of Sheffield should surely be a positive factor in why it needs uptrending [© new word] by C4 relocating some stuff here.

That pretty much sums it up!

A shame, but no surprise. Might have a slim chance with the creative hub thing - Id like to think we can at least beat Stoke!
