Ravenscraig – home to a thriving community

Over the past decade, Ravenscraig has been transformed. The site – a key part of Scotland’s industrial heritage – lay derelict for years but is now home to one of Europe’s largest urban regeneration projects. Investment of more than £200m has brought fresh life to the 1,200 acre site, with Ravenscraig now a thriving community with almost 1,000 homes either developed or consented, a popular sports and community centre, college, pub and hotel.

Over the next year, we will see significant development, including creation of a new green space, additional housing and transport infrastructure. A revised Masterplan will regenerate the site with sustainability and inclusive growth at its heart. As well as access to significant green space and nature there will be employment opportunities for people living in and around Ravenscraig.

Employment opportunities play a central role in the development plans, with conversations already underway with potential commercial occupants. These further planned additions will ensure that Ravenscraig’s impressive transformation continues over the next ten years and beyond.
