Plans submitted - Honey hopes to build 54 new homes at Waverley

Sheffield based housebuilder submits plans to deliver £15.5m development in Rotherham

Sheffield headquartered housebuilder Honey has submitted plans to deliver a £15.5m, 54 new home development in Waverley, Rotherham.

Called Homes by honey at Waverley, the proposed development will be located on the former Orgreave Colliery & Coking site off Rivelin Way. Subject to planning, Homes by honey at Waverley will comprise a mix of two, three, four and five-bedroom homes and will include semi-detached and detached properties.

Honey says its house types have all been specifically designed to combine “style, substance and sustainability” for the benefit of buyers. Homes by honey at Waverley will form part of the local council’s larger redevelopment plans to transform the 740-acre Orgreave Colliery & Coking site into a new, sustainable community.

If given the go ahead by Rotherham Metropolitan Borough Council, construction is expected to start this summer with residents able to move in from next summer. Of the 54 homes, 17 have been designated as affordable housing.

Founded in October 2022, Honey is backed by private equity firm Alchemy Partners and its Alchemy Special Opportunities Fund IV which has £937m of fully committed capital.

Since the start of this year, Honey has secured six sites across Yorkshire, Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire that, subject to planning, will deliver 867 new build homes and revenues of £262m.

Honey chief executive officer, Mark Mitchell, commented: “Waverley is an outstanding regeneration project, so we are very pleased to be able to submit our plans for consideration to become part of it.

“We are committed to delivering homes designed to combine style, substance and sustainability for the benefit of our buyers and the communities in which we build. Our proposed Homes by honey at Waverley development will do just that, providing high quality, high specification new homes to meet the significant demand that exists in the area.

“We are excited by the opportunity to make our vision for our development a reality and we now look forward to Rotherham Metropolitan Borough Council considering our plans for the site.”
