For hundreds of years, Rotherham town centre has been a place for people to come together and be a community. 

Town centres are changing; no longer, can they rely only on the traditional pull of retail to bring people together in this way. 

Work is underway to revitalise the town centre, with a large focus on leisure and entertainment along with new housing developments and improved open spaces.

We want the town centre to be a place that people will visit to socialise, live and work; where people bring their families, and to be a vibrant, diverse, and thriving community.

The new concept for the town centre is bold but realistic.
