News: Redevelopment planned for Rotherham site


Yorkshire Business Insider reports that the former Laycast foundry at Woodhouse, on the Rotherham side of the border with Sheffield, is to be redeveloped in a scheme likely to offer both office and industrial units. The 15-acre site, where production ceased in 2007, has been marketed by GVA Grimley for owner Ski Town Builders, which has now agreed a joint venture with local developer JF Finnegan. The site is accessible from junction 31 of the M1 and could be developed speculatively in parts. Phase one is expected to be ready for occupation in summer 2009. The Laycast foundry was seen as one of the most advanced in Europe after £15m of investment in 1998. JF Finnegan are also undertaking the development of the nearby former Beighton Colliery site, also on the Rotherham side of the border.
