Small site homebuilding initiative

Small sites initiative loho

Rotherham Council is proud to announce the launch of it’s new Small Site Homebuilding Initiative

The initiative aims to unlock development opportunities for local small and medium enterprise developers to deliver more, much needed high quality affordable housing within Rotherham. 

Launched in February 2023, the Council are proposing that the initiative will provide a fast tracked route for developers working on smaller sites they themselves secure within the Rotherham Borough. Rotherham Council will then enter into contract with developers to forward purchase newly constructed affordable homes off plan for an agreed price.

Ideally, the initiative is aimed at developers with projects that can deliver between three and nine homes, however larger sites will also be considered. The land must already be within the developers’ ownership or control, or be easily acquired. There is no closing date for the initiative currently and the Council welcomes applications from developers on any current or future schemes.
