PLANS for long-vacant land at Thrybergh will be shown in public tomorrow (Thursday).
The proposals for the former Chesterhill estate and a site over the road on Whinney Hill will be displayed at Thrybergh Primary School.
An invitation poster said: “Engie, Sanctuary Group, Great Places Housing Group and Sigma Capital, would like to invite you to a community consultation exhibition, where information explaining proposed housing developments on the Whinney Hill and Chesterhill Avenue, Thrybergh sites, will be provided.
“We will be there to discuss your views on the proposed developments and local residents will be given the opportunity to review the proposed drawings before a planning application is submitted.”
The brownfield land — empty since the old homes were demolished in 2008 — could hold about 240 properties, previous estimates have suggested.
But Rotherham Council has struggled to attract developers, who have instead opted for former greenbelt spots in other parts of the borough.
The exhibition will be open from 3.30pm to 7pm.
