    Albion Square (Bond St/BHS) and Colonial St (next to St Stephens) identified as possible sites for new ice arena, says new council report.

    Report also recommends retaining existing swimming pools rather than building new one in the city centre.

    Nothing's happening with it.

    I noticed last week that the massive Poundland opposite Paragaon is opening as a combined Sports Direct/USC store (presumably they're coming out of St Stephens).

    Will they be using the heat generated by refrigeration as in Geraghty's master plan?

    They need to try and do something about the empty shops.

    Had a wander round City centre today (as well as visiting History Centre). What is the building going up next to the New Theatre? Sure I read on here it is separate to the theatre?

    It's a university/technical college for engineering. There's a Hull Uni and a Siemens link somewhere. I forget the precise details.

    That's due to the mast on the roof of that section.

    The old Fire Station offices have gone, the New Theatre is immediately next door to the new UTC.

    The front of the fire station is still there, looking a bit out of place.

    The UTC is the new Ron Dearing University Traing College and it's immediately next door to the expanded New Theatre, the old fire service offices were demolished.

    Are you taking about the old Victorian Fire Station round the side of the New Theatre?
