This consultation seeks your views on proposals by Harworth (formally Harworth Estates) for the re-development of the Former Kellingley Colliery Site off Weeland Road within the District of Selby.
Harworth is one of the UK’s leading regeneration companies with a range of land and property interests, based at the flagship Waverley development site in the heart of the Sheffield City Region. The company was born out of the need to manage the land and property assets of UK Coal Plc, and was formally separated from the mining business in December 2012. Accordingly, Harworth is now an independent company.
Harworth pride themselves on their ability to work closely with local communities, public bodies, developers and other professionals to bring to life old brownfield sites and turn derelict land into employment areas, new homes, renewable energy centres and open space.
The company also manages a variety of sites, ranging from established business parks to agricultural estates that surround its active development sites.
The Story So Far
As you may be aware, Kellingley Colliery closed in December 2015 which resulted in a significant number of job losses. Harworth took over the ownership of Kellingley Colliery, following its closure, in March 2016.
Over the past few months Harworth, supported by a range of consultants, have looked at the various ways in which to bring life back to the site, and have now developed proposals for its sustainable redevelopment.
An outline planning application is currently being prepared for submission to Selby District Council in order to bring the site back into beneficial use. However, prior to its formal submission Harworth are extremely keen to hear your views.
