Rotherham’s Local Plan

The Local Plan will provide a long-term development strategy and set out policies and proposals for new housing. The Strategic Housing Market Assessment 2014 has identified 900 new houses a year are required across the Borough.

The Planning department have identified development sites in the Draft Sites and Policies Document. This will ensure that we meet the target of a five year supply of brownfield sites.

As part of our housing growth plans we want to exceed this target to a 1000 new build homes a year. With the right interventions we will see more homes built year on year until we reach our target.
