  • About the site

    About the Site

    The site lies within the new Waverley community in the suburb of Catcliffe, approximately 4 miles south of Rotherham and 5 miles east of Sheffield. With easy access to both Sheffield City Centre via A630 Sheffield Parkway and the M1 motorway, the site has excellent transport links.

    Currently vacant, the site benefits from an Outline Planning Permission for housing granted in March 2011. The total developable area is approximately 12.31 acres.

    It is at the heart of the emerging Waverley community, bounded by Highfield Spring to the south and the ‘greenway’ footpath link to the north.
