HOUSING, INFRASTRUCTURE AND REGENERATION
The availability of good quality, well connected and attractive development land for new homes and jobs is a major competitive advantage for the South Yorkshire Mayoral Combined Authority (SYMCA). But there are challenges with the quality of our existing built environment, especially in urban areas, and a need to invest in our current housing stock.
The attractiveness and viability of some employment locations mean that they are not attracting the quality of jobs and development we demand. SYMCA’s approach to land, housing and built environment is to;
Improve the quality of existing and new housing stock, whilst maintaining housing growth;
Ensure the supply of good quality, attractive and sustainably developed employment land that is widely accessible; and,
Proactively work on strategic planning opportunities to unlock potential through joined-up investment packages.
