News: Plans resubmitted for Maltby office development


Plans for a significant office development between Maltby and Hellaby in Rotherham have been resubmitted.

The development would see eight business units totalling 32,000 sq ft on land off Bawtry Road and Rotherham Road with associated car parking and landscaping.

The 2009 application from Boulby Davison Developments (led by the directors of Jaguar Homes in Sheffield) was refused by Rotherham's planning board but the decision was overturned following an appeal. The reasons for refusal centred on the concerns over the impact on traffic levels on the strategic road network and members' concerns over the impact it would have on the appearance and character of open Green Belt land adjacent to the site.

The site is in an open gap of countryside separating Maltby from Hellaby, although there is adjacent commercial development on the opposite side of the road from the site. The land was allocated for business development in the borough's Unitary Development Plan (UDP) (therefore allowing an office development) in anticipation of a proposed new road to be built to the south of the site. The re-alignment of the A631 never took place.

The application received objections from nearby residents and Maltby Town Council.

After reports into the impact on the nearby M18 junction were carried out and the removal of an office block from the plans, the Planning Inspectorate granted planning permission for the development in 2010.

The resubmitted plans, drawn up by Coda Planning, come with the expiration of the planning permission that gave three years for work to start.
