Site Context 

The former Library and Fire Station site extends to approximately 0.76 hectares and is located off High Street in Maltby.


The western part of the site still contains the vacant former Fire Station whilst the remainder of the site has been cleared. The site’s central area contains a telecommunications mast. The site slopes from High Street up towards the north and it benefits from two existing vehicular access points from High Street to the south.

The Rotherham Local Plan allocates the site for Community Facilities based on its historic use, however these former community uses (the fire station and library) have now been relocated and replaced elsewhere in the area and the site is no longer required for ongoing community facilities use.
