SCR Land Development and Disposal Plan

Eighty-five sites totalling almost 190 hectares of land are set to be available for development or disposal over the next 18 months in the Sheffield City Region (SCR).

The SCR’s latest Land Development and Disposal Plan (SCR LDDP) covering Quarter 3 (2017/18) provides an updated overview of the landholdings that SCR’s nine Local Authority partners expect to bring forward for development or sell. This version replaces previous versions of the LDDP, with future updates to be published on a quarterly basis.

The 85 sites are all intended to support a mix of residential development, commercial development or wider investment activity. They include Eyewitness Works, the historic Grade ll listed former cutlery factory in Sheffield; the Earth Centre in Doncaster; redundant offices, an industrial estate, and a cemetery lodge.

Further information on the sites included in the LDDP can be obtained by clicking on the appropriate link (in the Local Authority column) or by making contact with the identified key contact.

This City Region level LDDP, the first of its kind in the country, was created after requests from developers to provide transparency around public sector land opportunities.

The SCR LDDP has been developed by the SCR Joint Assets Board which has a key focus on accelerating the disposal of surplus public sector assets in order to maximise opportunities for housing and economic growth, as well as to support the most efficient use of the public sector estate.

Over the coming months, the SCR LDDP will be developed in order to include all surplus public sector land across the SCR, including opportunities from across a range of local and national government departments, as well as health partners.

In the meantime, the SCR LDDP complements the work of the Homes and Communities Agency (HCA) with a number of sites identified in the HCAs LDDP within the SCR: https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/land-development-and-disposal-plan
