The strategy and masterplan for the second phase of Doncaster MBC's Waterfront project outlines principles for regenerating a 15 hectare site of previously developed land to the north of the town centre into a mixed use development on the canal side location.
The scheme is one of the largest waterfront sites of its type in the UK.
Mayor Martin Winter said: "The Waterfront project is the most exciting waterfront regeneration project in the UK.
Prime gateway site
"The Waterfront will become one of Doncaster's prime gateway sites, boasting impressive public access and leisure opportunities plus high-quality buildings.
"Alongside the existing new Education Hub there should be a really good feel about the area."
The first phase of the Waterfront was completed in 2006 with the construction of the Doncaster Education City Hub building.
The preparatory works for the second phase are well underway.
This site preparation includes a variety of complex engineering works including the now completed filling in of the Gas House Bight, the relocation of the on-site water pumping station, land remediation and sheet piling to make the site safe for heavy development.
Once these specialist engineering elements are complete, utilities such as drainage and electricity will be added ensuring the area is ready for private sector investment and development.
