Chuka Umunna, Shadow business minister has visited the £42 million Fox Valley, Stocksbridge redevelopment. Mr Umunna toured the site and laid a specially engraved stone block on one of the main retail and office units at the development site. He was also given the opportunity to meet the professional team working on the project which has been seven years in the planning.

Scheduled for completion early in 2016, Fox Valley is regenerating a former steelworks site neighbouring Tata Speciality Steels in Stocksbridge, the development team has worked closely with the company on the project and the relocation of the Tata Steel warehouse comprised the first phase of the project which was completed in November 2014.

The development will deliver around 32 new retail, café and restaurant units ranging from 635 to 16,000 sq. ft. as well as high spec office space from 600 - 10,000 sq. ft.

A new town centre car park and landscaping are also part of the scheme and 114 new family homes are being built on a neighbouring site.

Dransfield Properties has received an investment of £8,111,040 from the Yorkshire and Humber ERDF Programme 2007- 2013, which is managed by the Department for Communities and Local Government to bring forward the Fox Valley project.

“We are delighted to welcome the shadow business minister to site and show him the extent of the development here in north Sheffield.
We have had a great deal of support from our local representatives in bringing forward the Fox Valley development and we look forward to the scheme being completed and opening this time next year.”
