Plans announced for £50 million Waverley development
What the development would look like.

A £50 MILLION retail and leisure development will include a hotel, shops, restaurants - and a new town square.

The 12-acre project will also have a transport hub, medical centre, gym, coffee shops and office space.

Dransfield Properties and Harworth Group announced the project last Monday to serve the growing Waverley community.

Around 600 homes have already been built and another 3,400 are set to be added over the next 15 years. 

Dransfield managing director Mark Dransfield said: “This is a really exciting project to be involved with. 

“We are delighted to work alongside Harworth, bringing our team’s experience and knowledge of delivering retail developments to this new community.

“Waverley is an exciting development which has great potential for creating a high-quality retail and leisure environment, designed to support the growing community and the wider region.”

Cafes, restaurants and shops will be set around a central car park area, with a mix of independent and national retailers being promised.

There will also be “piazza” areas with water features and a town square, which will hold regular farmers’ markets.

The development will link the Advanced Manufacturing Park with the residential area. Its transport hub will connect the community with central Rotherham.

Dransfield opened shopping centre Fox Valley in Sheffield last summer and won awards for its Marshall’s Yard scheme in Gainsborough.

Harworth chief executive Owen Michaelson said: “We are delighted to partner with Dransfield for this significant development on our flagship site, given their track record across the UK and their absolute focus on quality.

“We expect the local centre to become central to the Waverley community, as it co-joins the AMP and the residential area, offering a range of essential facilities and bringing hundreds of job opportunities to the region.”

A planning application is expected to be submitted this spring.
