Nearly £100,000 was meant to help create new woodland at the Waverley development in Rotherham but when it turned out that not a single tree had been planted, the “entrepreneur” who secured the money was jailed for fraud.
On the site of the former Orgreave coking works, Harworth Estates is bringing forward 3,890 new homes with shops, a health centre, parks and schools, to create a progressive new residential and business community within a lakeside setting. The first 570 houses are currently being developed by Taylor Wimpey, Barratt Homes and Harron Homes. It also includes the UK’s premier Advanced Manaufacturing Park (AMP).
The Birmingham Mail reports that as part of a national scheme to establish new woodlands, 30-year-old Pritesh Ladwa was awarded a £98,000 grant for a forest scheme at Waverley in 2014.
