Harworth Group retail development moving forward at Rotherham

Lincoln-based Lindum Group is making good progress in the delivery of a Harworth Group retail development and medical centre at Olive Lane, Waverley, near Rotherham.

The shopping area will feature convenience stores, cafes and restaurants and public realm and landscaping and is due for completion in November this year.

A groundbreaking event took place at the site in December 2023, attended by representatives of Harworth, Lindum Group, Rotherham Metropolitan Borough Council, the Waverley Community Council, and Forge New Homes, which is building new homes at Olive Lane.

Following an agreement with NHS England and Rotherham Metropolitan Borough Council, Lindum also began construction of the site’s £3m two-storey medical centre in February, which is set to be handed over in October.

Chris Fraser, project managing the retail works, said: “Works have progressed well. The steel frames for three of the four buildings have been erected, with the frame for the remaining building due to erected in mid-July.

“Two of the buildings are now having superstructure brickwork erected, with the third being started in two weeks.

“Scaffolding is due to be erected ready for roofing works in the coming weeks for the first building and will be progressively erected for the remaining buildings within two months to allow doors and windows to go in at the end of summer for watertightness.

“Drainage works are ongoing and will be complete in mid-July. Section 38 roadworks have been installed ready for sign off as adoptable highways.

“By the end of the summer we will be building up levels ready for external works such as landscaping and paving.”
