Plans have been submitted to Rotherham Metropolitan Borough Council for a new mixed-use development including a new hotel.
The plans have been submitted by national urban regenerator Muse Developments, which will bring both a “new offer” and “increased vibrancy” to Rotherham town centre.
Following consent and exchange of agreements with the main anchor occupiers, it is anticipated that construction will begin in autumn 2021.
Dan Needham, development director at Muse Developments, said: “We’re at the next stage on the journey to deliver an innovative and striking scheme in the heart of Rotherham that will benefit the town and the community for years to come.
“Forge Island will be a destination that will bring a family-friendly offer to the town, where people will be able to relax during their free time. Our collaboration with Rotherham Council is built on a shared vision, values, with the goal to deliver a truly transformational scheme, and we’re all moving in the same direction to bring that vision to life.”
