Plans have been released for a new football stadium on the site of the former Guest & Chrimes factory site in Rotherham
Rotherham United football club has taken one step closer to playing in their own home.
Initial plans have been unveiled for a new state-of-the-art stadium in the centre of Rotherham.
Chairman and owner Tony Stewart announced the club's intentions for the new site back in January 2010, and now artist impressions have been released.
The new community football ground forms part of the £40 million Rotherham Renaissance Scheme which will see a total regeneration of the town centre over 25 years.
You can comment on the plans for the new stadium via the
football club's website.
The drawings of the new Rotherham stadium were released on the same day that Rotherham Council signed a £40m partnership with Anglo-Dutch property firm TCN UK.
In the deal, TCN will inject cash into the Rotherham Renaissance project and in return will be able to use the land which the council vacates in 2012, to develop for retail use.

Rotherham United's former home Millmoor
The Millers have been homeless since Summer 2008, when they had to move to Don Valley Stadium in Sheffield after being unable to agree a deal with the owners of their previous ground, Millmoor.
The rise and fall of the Millers
The new 12,000 seated community town centre stadium is to be built between Don Street and Main Street in Rotherham, on the site of the old Guest & Chrimes site - a factory which at one time made taps and valves.
The new site has good public transport links and the council say that the car park will be used not only for matches but also for commuters and shoppers during the week.
Much of the 25-year Rotherham Renaissance scheme has already started, with a new health centre, leisure complex and apartments already built - and an £8 million redevelopment of the railway station has also started.
The £40 million pound deal is TCN's second key partnership in Rotherham, the first being the 285 acre Waterfront development in Manvers, north of the borough - which includes 400 homes, a retail centre, golf course and business park on what was once an ex-coalfield wasteland.
