Construction by contractors Esh has begun at Manvers, which will provide space designed to help small businesses start and grow.

The nearby Century Business Centre was constructed in 2000 and has helped more than 300 companies. 

Cllr Denise Lelliott, Cabinet Member for Jobs and the Local Economy, said: “Providing high-quality office and workshop accommodation is important for attracting and growing businesses to Rotherham.

“The Century Business Centre site has been an undoubted success over the past couple of decades, so it is exciting to break ground as construction begins on this new business incubation hub at Century Business Park.”
