Town plans move ahead

Have your say

WORK to create a blueprint for the future development of a South Yorkshire town is taking a step forward this week.

Consultation has already taken place around Rotherham by council bosses - now officials are drawing up details of the borough’s Local Development Framework.

The document is important because it allocates land in all areas to different uses, such as residential, industrial and what should be protected as green belt - determining what sort of new projects should take place in which area.

Tomorrow, Karl Battersby, Rotherham Council’s strategic director of environment and development services, will outline details of the timescale for the document to be put together.

Details will be revealed with a presentation at the Town Hall.

A spokeswoman for Rotherham Council said: “The timescale for creation of the proposed Local Development Framework for the next 15 years will be outlined.”
