Politics and recrimination aside, it seems to me that much of the debate
about the NCPM's future is limited by the potential usability of the space.

Were a means to be found that allowed daylight into the upper four drums,
this would open up the way for any 'normal' daytime use - which the CIQ so
badly needs.

Replacing one of the upper tiers of steel panels with glazing would achieve
this - there's a visual of how this might look at www.lampson.co.uk/ncpm.

Done sensitively, there should be no need to compromise the architectural
integrity of this landmark building that has come to symbolise Sheffield -
for better or worse.
