News: Dinnington Colliery set for next phase of redevelopment


Renaissance South Yorkshire has submitted plans to open up the next phase of development at the reclaimed site of Dinnington Colliery in Rotherham. A planned new access road would open up a further 13 hectares of development land for industrial, commercial and residential use as part of Phase 2 of an overall development that is years ahead of schedule. The former Dinnington Colliery site was reclaimed for industrial and commercial use and put on the market in December 2005. 18 hectares in Phase 1 are currently under development and initially it was thought that Phase 1 would take around eight to ten years, however, the majority of the site has now been developed in only three years. Earlier this year, there were only three plots totalling 3 hectares left on Phase 1. The reclamation of the site was recently featured in a national regeneration magazine for the way bacteria was used to digest contaminants in the soil. A process called bioremediation. The development is home to a £60m state of the art printing facility for Johnston Press, engineering company Macalloy Ltd, Scomark Ltd, IBA Molecular and E.V Bennett Ltd. Speculative developers, Priority Sites, Northern Trust, New Park Developments and Evans Easyspace have all found success on the site. Phase 2 is aimed solely at end users and not developers as there is a distinct lack of land available in South Yorkshire. Rotherham Investment & Development Office (RiDO) believe that there are already a number of serious interested enquiries for plots that are being followed up. It is estimated that Phase 2 will provide employment for around 1000 people when it is complete.
