What we will be doing in the town centre
Rotherham town centre is ideally situated close to key regional economic hubs such as Waverley AMP, Bassingthorpe Farm and Sheffield City Region Local Enterprise Partnership zone (SCR LEP)
We are using our assets and resources to develop new housing to extend the existing town centre housing offer. This would provide specialist housing provision to support vulnerable groups, including homeless young people. The new properties will extend and complement the new residential offer at Waverley and Bassingthorpe.
The Council is working with Sheffield Council and the HCA to produce a prospectus of sites within the proposed housing zone. This will attract developers, simplify the planning processes and help access to finance.
