News: Waverley consultation continues


Following CABE's design review, residents living in the vicinity of one of Rotherham's biggest restoration projects are being asked for their views on the latest development proposals for the site. The next stages in the restoration of the former Orgreave opencast mining site, which sits on the border of both Rotherham and Sheffield, will be discussed at four public meetings held in four villages in the next few weeks. Presentations will be made by Atisreal on behalf of UK Coal - the land-owners, the South Yorkshire Passenger Transport Executive and Rotherham Borough Council. Specialist consultants and council officers will also attend to answer detailed questions. Coun. Gerald Smith, Cabinet Member for Regeneration and Development Services for Rotherham Borough Council, urged the public to attend the meetings if possible. He added: "This is your opportunity to give us your views about these planning applications and the proposals for the Orgreave site. This is a huge regeneration project that will affect the surrounding villages in both Rotherham and Sheffield and these public meetings will allow the developers to outline their plans and the public to give their views." The public meetings are to be held:
- November 25, from 7 at Treeton Primary School
- November 27, from 7.30 at Woodhouse Mill Working Men's Club & Institute
- December 1, from 7 at Handsworth Grange School
- December 2, from 7 at Catcliffe Primary School
