Residents and businesses are being invited to have their say about plans for a new sustainable industry park close to the River Don.

 Sheffield City Council is working with a number of landowners on regeneration plans for the former Union Carbide site on Claywheels Lane, which has been largely derelict for more than 20 years.

The meeting, which will take place at Hillsborough Trinity Methodist Church, Middlewood Road, Sheffield, on Wednesday July 12 from 6pm to 8pm, will give an overview of the expected development of the site.

A number of planning applications are expected to be submitted, with one already being considered by Sheffield City Council.

Plans revealed last month for the former UCAR site on Claywheels Lane, semi-derelict for nearly 20 years, could see it transformed into a sustainable industries park by owners AMG as well as accommodating a new state-of-the art steel press building for local firm Abbey Stainless.

The site would become a centre for recycling and renewable energy generation and has the potential to create at least 70 new jobs.

Some £30m of private investment could be attracted to the site, which is being hooked up to the gas and electricity networks for the first time thanks to £1.5m from the Sheffield City Region Investment Fund.
