This zone is found within the districts of Barnsley, Doncaster, Sheffield and Rotherham. This zone is characterised chiefly of small areas of housing developed speculatively between 1914 and 1945 in small estates or as areas of ribbon development on the edges of existing settlements. These types of suburbs are often located on the edges of larger settlements and are particularly large on the western limits of Sheffield. Stylistically, developments in South Yorkshire during this period have much in common with areas developed in the Municipal Suburbs and Planned Industrial Settlements zones. Differences are likely to include larger housing units with more variety of housing types along individual streets, and an increased number of status differentiating features such as hung tiles, bay windows, stained glass and street trees.
