The homes for Rother Living are being delivered as part of Rotherham Council’s ambitious housing growth programme.
Willmott Dixon will build a mix of houses and apartments for council housing, shared ownership, and affordable sale.
Stuart Kerr, operations director at Willmott Dixon, said: “We’re excited to be working in partnership with Rotherham Council and their Rother Living brand to create homes that will make a difference to the local community by helping many residents get on the housing ladder.”
He added: “Throughout the three projects, we have committed to investing 5% back into the local community, equating to a monetary value of £1.3m.”
Councillor Dominic Beck, cabinet member for housing at Rotherham Council, said: “These are exciting developments that will transform three disused former industrial sites and comes at a time when the Forge Island part of our Town Centre Masterplan starts to take shape.”
The developments, which have been designed by Bond Bryan Architects, are due for completion in 2022.
