The site for the proposed new development is located at Far Field Lane, Wath-upon-Dearne, Rotherham.
It is approximately 24 acres in size and is allocated for housing development (site H97) in the Council’s 2019 adopted Local Plan, meaning the principle of residential development here is acceptable.
We believe the development of the site will provide much needed new housing for people in a convenient and sustainable location, whilst contributing to the current and future housing needs in the area.
Detailed technical reports will be submitted as part of the planning application to assess any potential impacts of the development and to identify any necessary mitigation measures needed to resolve them.
These reports will consider potential impacts on matters including (but not limited to) potential impacts on drainage infrastructure; the local road network and junctions and all necessary ecology survey work.
