A guide to the Sites and Policies document

The Sites and Policies document forms part of Rotherham’s Local Plan. It identifies development sites for new homes and employment development across the borough to meet the targets set out in the Core Strategy. It also includes detailed policies to guide decisions on planning applications.

The accompanying Policies Map identifies all proposed development sites, land uses and policy designations in the borough.

The Sites and Policies document was adopted by the Council on 27 June 2018. The following documents are available to download:

  • Sites and Policies Document Adopted June 2018
  • Policies Map Sheets
  • Adoption Statement
  • The Inspector's final report
  • Integrated Impact Assessment (including Sustainability Appraisal) (IIA)
  • Strategic Environmental Assessment (SEA) Post Adoption Statement

Errata (September 2018)

Appendix 1 of the Sites and Policies Document contained minor errors to the retail centre boundaries, at Rotherham (Map 8), Parkgate (Map 13) and Swinton (Map 15). The Council apologises for these errors, which have now been corrected. If you downloaded the Sites and Policies Document prior to 27 September 2018, you should replace it with the corrected version.

Whilst the independent examination of the Sites and Policies document is now complete, the examination website remains available to view below.
