Rotherham ‘masterplan’ to allow town centre to compete with Meadowhall
A new masterplan to regenerate Rotherham town centre so it can compete with Meadowhall is to be drawn up.
Rotherham Council commissioners and cabinet members have approved the creation of a new plan for the next decade that will potentially result in the building of a new cinema and theatre, as well as town-centre and waterfront housing.
It is expected that a firm will be appointed in September to help create the plan.
A report to councillors said the aim of the plan is to create a ‘connected and prosperous wider town centre’ that will create jobs and increase the town’s ‘profile as a major leisure and visitor destination’.
