Barnsley Council are consulting on two key documents that will form part of the town’s Local Development Framework.

  • Development Sites and Places  identifies land for housing, employment and other uses. This document also sets out the Council’s planning policies for development management;
  • Barnsley Town Centre Area Action Plan sets out the vision for Barnsley town centre and identifies future development sites.

Up to date local plans set the future planning framework. Sites identified now in Development Sites and Places and the Barnsley Town Centre Area Action Plan will stand a far greater chance of development than sites not identified in these plans.

If you are looking to develop land or property interests in Barnsley and the town’s centre you may need to respond to this consultation.  By doing this you can make sure your site is allocated and that Barnsley’s  future planning policy allows you to do what you want to do.

If you don’t respond your development may stand less chance of approval and when that happens it costs time and money.
