Gas Holder on Gas Hill
Following dismantling of the Cremorne Lane gasholder, The 16-sided gasometer on Gas Hill, which dates back to 1880, is the last one surviving in the city (LinkExternal link Eastern Daily Press).

The 0.3 hectare site, consisting of the disused gas holder itself and small areas of incidental land, is located to the east of the city centre, on the steep slope of Gas Hill. It is allocated for housing development with a minimum of 15 dwellings to be provided. There is no guarantee that the gas holders will survive, but the council’s local plan LinkExternal link states: “Since the gas holder is locally listed and a significant local landmark, consideration should be given to retaining the existing gas holder structures as part of the design of the housing development.”
