Your Community Councillors
The Waverley Community is in Rotherham and lies on the boundary with Sheffield, in South Yorkshire. The Community consists of a new residential and manufacturing development managed by Harworth on the site of the old Orgreave coal pit. It currently contains over 2265 households, which will increase to nearly 4000 over the next twenty years. The Waverley Community Council consists of seven Councillors who hold regular Council Meetings which are open to the public. The Council meets at the AMP Technology Centre's, in their conferencing rooms, usually on the first Wednesday of each month.
Waverley has two large lakes, with over 300 hectares of open space to be explored, with a link through the Woodhouse Washlands to Rother Valley Country Park.
Waverley is a growing area with a new school, called Waverley Junior Academy, and a 1.5km park is being developed, as well as a bike track. There are plans to introduce a multi-purpose space for retail uses, a gym, offices, restaurants and cafes, a supermarket, a medical centre, plus a community space in the near future.
