Dozens of affordable new homes have been built on the derelict site of a former primary school that had become a target for vandals.
Arches Housing have completed work on 75 new houses in East Street, Dinnington, on a site that had previously stood derelict for a decade.
The former Dinnington Primary School and a row of 26 older terraced houses were demolished following the completion of the new community primary school - with the site suffering acts of vandalism, dumping and anti-social behaviour.
After lying empty for more than 10 years, Arches Housing worked with Rotherham Council and construction firm Westleigh Homes to develop it.
The work was part-funded with a grant from the Homes and Communities Agency.
Of the 75 new properties, 69 will be offered for rent through Rotherham Council’s lettings scheme, with six offered for shared ownership.
