Muse Developments has been chosen by Rotherham Council as its preferred partner for the regeneration of Forge Island – the key site in Rotherham town centre.

The successful proposal submitted by Muse Developments includes a cinema, food and drink outlets and a hotel. The leisure facilities will be set within an attractive public space and will include a new pedestrian bridge connecting to the rest of the town centre.

Dan Needham, development director at Muse Developments, said: “We’re delighted to be given the opportunity to work with Rotherham Council on the first phase of their ambitious regeneration of the town centre.

“The Forge Island programme will maximise the benefits of the waterside location and extend the town’s cultural offer.”

With work to tie up contracts ongoing, the first phase of work has been given an expected start date of October 2019, and completion within two years.
