Bassingthorpe Farm

A DEVELOPMENT of 2,400 homes on land removed from the green belt will be the subject of a public drop-in event. 

Work could start of building properties at Bassingthorpe Farm in Greasbrough in 2020, it was announced late last year.

More information about the project will be given at a public drop-in session at Greasbrough Primary School on Thursday, April 27, from 4pm to 8pm.

Bassingthorpe Farm is a major part of Rotherham Borough Council’s target of adding 900 homes a year in the borough.

The site was removed from the green belt in 2014 following a lengthy battle with campaigners who wanted it to remain agricultural.

The authority and landowners Fitzwilliam Wentworth Estate have said that proposals will also include 11 hectares of employment land, a new school, shops, a pub and sports fields.
