Rotherham Council has ambitions to significantly increase the number of new homes built in Rotherham. To help achieve this, the Council is piloting the use of modern methods of construction as a swifter and more efficient way to deliver new homes.
The Council will be seeking tender returns from housing providers using MMC to deliver two pilot projects:
- The first will consist of 10 small ‘pod’ type homes, across two sites/two lots, suitable for single person households requiring affordable accommodation, and
- The second consists of 12 bungalows, across three sites/two lots, suitable for older residents/residents with mobility needs
It is possible for developers to choose to bid for one or more of the lots.
This is identified as a pilot scheme which the Council hopes to roll out as a larger programme, depending on the success of the pilot.
The new homes will be added to Council stock, and will be developed on Council land.
These opportunities will go to tender this month and will be evaluated mid/late September.
