Atisreal Sets Out Mine Bid

By Anonymous

Planners at Atisreal have concluded their work on a rnasterplan for South Yorkshire's biggest brownfield development, which is set to create a 4,ooo-home community. In an outline application submitted to Rotherham Metropolitan Borough Council, UK Coal proposes to redevelop a former coke works and mining site at Waverley, near Catcliff, into a residential and employment site.

Atisreal's Sheffield office planning department head John Dunshea said: "We have worked to produce a masterplan that takes account of requirements for planning policy, housing needs and the local community and will provide a vibrant and attractive environment.

"The proposals aim to develop a mixed-use quarter and provide a functional framework to allow Waverley to become an integrated, sustainable community."

A large office development on the site led by developer Helical Governetz is expected later this year. The South Yorkshire Passenger Transport Executive is also due to submit a park-and-ride planning application.
