HAR­WORTH Es­tates’ plan­ning ap­pli­ca­tion to build 1200 new homes on the for­mer site of Rossington Col­liery has been ap­proved by Don­caster Bor­ough Coun­cil.

Work on the project is an­tic­i­pated to start af­ter the link road opens in 2014 and com­ple­tion is expected in 2015.

Rossington Col­liery closed in 2007. Adrian Spaw­forth, project de­signer and manag­ing di­rec­tor of Spaw­forths, con­sul­tants on the project, says: “It is a credit to the teams, of­fi­cers, coun­cil­lors, and community rep­re­sen­ta­tives who have sup­ported the scheme over the last year that, even in these chal­leng­ing times, there is a will to make things hap­pen and things that are truly trans­for­ma­tional can still be achieved.”
