Rotherham Borough Council are drawing up their new Local Plan for the whole of the Rotherham borough.
The Council have a draft plan in which they have identified what they think are the most suitable sites for new homes and development in Rotherham. I would encourage all local residents to look at this plan and make your views known to the Council.
To find out more residents can visit www.rotherham.gov.uk/localplan or attend the forthcoming public drop-in sessions that the Council are holding. At these drop-in sessions the Council will show the detail of their proposals and will discuss individual sites for each local community.
Drop-in sessions are being held at Anston Parish Hall on Tuesday 4 June from 2.30pm to 6.30pm, Maltby Full Life Church on Monday 10 June from 2.30pm to 6.30pm, Aston Parish Hall on Thursday 13 June from 2.30pm to 6.30pm, Wales Village Hall on Tuesday 18 June from 2.30pm to 6.30pm and Dinnington Resource Centre on Thursday 20 June from 2.30pm to 6.30pm.
The draft plan can also be viewed at the Customer Service centres in Dinnington, Maltby and Aston as well as at all libraries throughout the Rotherham borough.
Comments should be made by 5pm on Monday 29 July 2013 using the Council's online consultation system at http://rotherham.limehouse.co.uk/portal
