News: Waverley proposals go on show


Plans to transform a former coke works and mining site at Waverley in Rotherham into a high quality residential and employment site are on show for the public to view. The multi-million pound proposals by UK Coal will be clarified through a series of consultation events over the next four months taking place at Orgreave, Treeton, Tinsley, Handsworth, Catcliffe, Darnall, Woodhouse and Aston, with meetings going through to July. The Waverley Liaison Group, which consists of 15 members representing the local communities, has been established to act as the central coordinator of the public consultation. John Dunshea, head of the planning department at Atisreal's Sheffield office, said: "Public consultation is an integral part of the process of communicating the plans and informing and involving local people in the proposals ahead of the outline planning application submission." Following the Advanced Manufacturing Park and the Highfield Commercial developments, the plans for the residential aspects of Waverley, to include 4,000 homes, will be the third large application for the area. An application for a large office development for government workers at the site is also proposed following a link up with Helical Bar plc.
