//Public Sector Development land available across the SCR

Published 5th June 2019 at 10:56am

Around 160 hectares of land over 82 sites will be made available for development and investment by Local Authorities in the Sheffield City Region (SCR) over the next 18 months.

The sites which are now available to view on the SCR’s Investment Opportunities Portfolio, have been made available as part of the SCR’s Land Development and Disposal Plan (LDDP) which showcases sites available for a range of potential uses including residential and commercial development, as well as wider investment opportunities.

This City Region level LDDP is the first of its kind in the country and was created after requests from developers and private sector partners 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 speeding up the sale of surplus public sector assets to maximise opportunities for housing and economic growth, and to make the most efficient use of the public sector estate.

Over the coming months, the SCR LDDP will be developed 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.

Investors and developers can also find full details of the sites on the attached document.

If you would like to speak to a member of the SCR Inward Investment Team about any specific sites or for advice on investment opportunities across the region, call 0114 220 3444 or email enquiries@scrinvest.com.

The SCR LDDP complements the work of Homes England, more details of which can be found here.
