Welcome to Well Rotherham

The former Orgreave Colliery site in Waverley is being transformed into a brand new commercial and residential centre which will be home to a thriving local community.

Dransfield Properties and Harworth Estates are working together to develop the area, creating a vision for new homes, shops and a health hub. Local people will benefit from access to health and wellbeing services, job opportunities plus skills and training.

The former colliery complex is already home to the Advanced Manufacturing Park (AMP), the UK’s premier advanced manufacturing technology park. The new Waverley Community will have nearly 4,000 homes plus office and commercial areas. It aims to achieve zero carbon status and will be a great example of sustainable development with green spaces including recreation areas with a country park including two lakes and woodland.

Well Rotherham is involved in making sure the new development support people to adopt and maintain healthy lifestyles and be part of an active community. The team is also establishing links with community businesses, voluntary and other organisations to see how the assets of Waverley can be used to benefit both the local and wider Rotherham communities.
