Dearne Valley residents are being asked for their views on proposed housing and employment sites across the area for the next 15 years.

From Monday, May 20, people across Rotherham will have ten weeks to make their views known on potential development sites being proposed by Rotherham Council as part of their Local Plan.

The council’s cabinet agreed that the draft document should be made available to the public as part of an extensive consultation programme.

Karl Battersby, strategic director for environment and development services, said he hoped everyone will take the opportunity to have their say on this “very important document” that will shape the future of Rotherham for the next 15 years.

He said: “The need to produce a plan is not optional, it is statutory. In addition, by coming up with our own plan we can give people a say in which sites will be developed in what is a blueprint for the future.”

Public drop in sessions have been arranged at Rawmarsh High Street Centre on June 6 from 2.30-6.30pm and Wath Montgomery Hall on July 5 from 2.30-6.30pm.
