Rotherham Housing Developer Summit 2017

Last year’s Rotherham Housing Developer Summit in October 2017 was another great success.

The event gave us the opportunity to engage with many of you directly, we were able to discuss future opportunities to work together and make many new business connections.

There was a real buzz in the room as delegates found out about our aspirations for the Town Centre, Bassingthorpe Farm and Swinton, as well as hearing about the Councils innovative site cluster model and opportunities for new housing across some of our smaller sites.

We thank everyone who attended for your generous comments and how we can continue to improve.
