Work has started on a new link road which paves the way for a major regeneration scheme creating thousands of jobs and homes in the north-east of Doncaster.
The Hatfield Link Road is a 2.9km stretch of new road from Junction 5 of the M18 to Waggons Way next to the former Hatfield Colliery. It is much more than a new road though. It is a crucial piece of infrastructure which enables work to start on the exciting Unity Project.
Doncaster's Open Access Land The Countryside and Rights of Way Act 2000 created a new statutory right of access on foot to open countryside and common land. The area of land where the right applies has been specifically designated. In the Borough of Doncaster this is restricted to Thorne Moors, part of Hatfield Moor and some small spots of woodland. Access land is shown on the OS Explorer map highlighted with a yellow wash and a pink border.
Hatfield High Street was designated a conservation area on 21 December 1970. A full appraisal has yet to be carried out.
Hatfield - Manor Road was designated a conservation area on 19 November 1990. A full appraisal has yet to be carried out.
