Developers await Wath housing appeal decision

DEVELOPERS will have to wait until next month to find out if their appeal to overturn a planning decision has been successful.

Gleeson put their case to the Planning Inspectorate last Wednesday (8) after Rotherham Council rejected plans for 34 homes on a former school site in Wath last year.

Members of the planning board turned down the application because they felt the homes were too small under new guidelines.

The application for the site off Park Road was also subject to a campaign from residents who were concerned about its impact on parking, safety and traffic congestion.

A decision is expected in mid to late February.
