12. Sheaf Square, Owned by the Homes and Communities Agency this site has been on the market since 2008.  There may be an opportunity to re-naturalise the Porter Brook here and provide public access as part of the HS2 Station alterations.  The Sheaf culverts under the station are unlikely to be exposed, but we could bring in some light tubes, or solar powered LED illumination to enable fish and wildlife passage.
