Harworth reveals plans for Waverley development in Yorkshire

Harworth Group plc has unveiled plans for a new mixed-use scheme at its flagship Waverley development in Rotherham, Yorkshire.


The new project called Olive Lane has been designed by Harworth, in collaboration with Coda Architecture, PWP Landscape Design, and BE Design.  

It is proposed to be developed on approximately 10 acres of land, between the Advanced Manufacturing Park (AMP) and the site’s existing residential area.

The plans comprise retail uses, a gym, offices, restaurants and cafes, a supermarket, a medical centre, community space, bus hub, and a residential development.

Harworth is sharing its plans with residents and workers ahead of submitting a planning application in 2021.

It is also actively seeking expressions of interest from potential occupiers to add to the list of interested parties wanting to take space at the proposed development.

Duncan Armstrong-Payne, associate director for major projects at Harworth, said: “The importance of strong communities and the need for liveable, walkable neighbourhoods is central to our vision at Waverley, which has been reinforced by the Covid-19 pandemic.  

“Our proposal for Olive Lane brings together a high-density mix of uses, with an emphasis on high-quality design and finish, providing the facilities that local residents and workers at the AMP rightfully expect.”

Richard Petyt, partner at Knight Frank, added: “The Olive Lane development has great potential to create a high-quality retail and leisure environment and to provide the much-needed facilities to ensure the area works as a viable, vibrant, and dynamic community.  

“These facilities will further attract new residents and businesses to live and work at the development, and also encourage sustainable patterns of shopping and service within the heart of a genuinely sustainable community.”
