WYG, partnered with Lambert Smith Hampton, were appointed by Rotherham Borough Council to produce a Masterplan for Rotherham Town Centre; this includes viability and deliverability analysis, and an Implementation Plan to help turn the vision and plans into reality.
The Masterplan is an important opportunity for Rotherham. It allows the Council, other key land-owners and stakeholders to explore possibilities to enhance and support growth in this key area of the town and allows the Council to set out its expectations for the content and timing of development proposals.
The Implementation Masterplan builds on the proposals set out in the Town Centre Supplementary Planning Document which was adopted in 2016. It sets out proposals for a number of key sites across the centre, but also looks at the town as whole. It is the ambition that these key under-utilised sites will be transformed and will contribute to a new and vibrant Town Centre as part of a comprehensive vision.
The Masterplan details how major development will take place - from a vibrant leisure quarter at Forge Island, a new leisure attraction at Guest & Chrimes, attractive outdoor spaces, and high quality riverside living.
Highlights of the Plan include:
The Masterplan documents below contain a series of proposals and plans, which brings to life how the town is moving forwards, utilising its river and canal, its open spaces and its feature buildings. At the heart of the Plan is to create a much-improved visitor experience with more to do and to see.
