Housing Minister visits Highfield Lane South
Kris Hopkins MP, Housing Minister at the Department for Communities and Local Government, recently visited Cheetham Hill Construction's Highfield Lane South site in Rotherham.
The Minister's visit was part of a scheduled tour of Waverley, where Harworth Estates is developing Yorkshire's largest ever mixed-use brownfield development in South Yorkshire across a total of 741 acres - an area bigger than Sheffield city centre. Over a development phase of 20 years, the site will see the establishment of a new community of around 4,000 homes, shops, restaurants, schools, leisure facilities, health and community centres and parks. This is in addition to the further development of employment land at the UK's premier Advanced Manufacturing Park, home to world-class employers such as Boeing and Rolls-Royce.
CHC is currently working on the Highfield Lane South project for Harworth, which incorporates the construction of a c.630m new access road and a range of infrastructure works, including drainage, utilities, electrical works/substation and landscaping. These works will open up land for further housing construction and are expected to be completed in June this year.
CHC also completed the Waverley AMP Loop Road Phase 4 Project in 2013, which required the construction of approx. 500m of new industrial estate road, together with continuation and alterations to previously installed adoptable deep drainage, to further open up employment land.
