Rotherham Council is progressing plans to kickstart a stalled commercial development in order to support inward investment and job creation, and at the same time generate income for the authority.
A £5.2m scheme would involve two business units at Beighton Link, expected to total 49,000 sq ft. Developer JF Finnegan would build out the units utilising cash from the Sheffield city region JESSICA fund.
The authority previously worked with landowner and developer Harworth Group to unlock a £2.7m loan from the JESSICA Fund, which led to the first R-evolution scheme on the Advanced Manufacturing Park (AMP) – a 117,000 sq ft speculative industrial development, the success of which has lead to further phases.
