Guest and Chrimes plans approach new phase
By David Beddows | 27/01/2018
PROPOSALS for a leisure complex and hotel around the site of the old Guest and Chrimes building next to the AESSEAL New York Stadium could take a step forward next month.
Rotherham United chairman Tony Stewart is due to meet English Heritage to further discuss the detail behind the vision for the former Grade II listed iron foundry.
Mr Stewart is keen to press on with Phase Two of the NYS site development as the stadium itself approaches its sixth anniversary.
He said: "I've invested quite a lot of money — a six figure sum — to get a situation where a top leisure company in the UK to work with us to get a leisure complex up and running.
"Ordinance surveys and structural surveys have been done and I have put a masterplan forward for the leisure centre and hotel but that has to be assessed by English Heritage.
"We've had one meeting since the turn of the year and I hope the next one will help us put a structure in place to move to the next stage which we can announce next month."
