Thank you for visiting the website. The closing date to provide comments on the draft Barnsley West Masterplan Framework has now ended.

We are now considering all responses in finalising the Barnsley West Masterplan Framework document. All comments will be shared with Barnsley Council.


Developers Strata Homes and Sterling Capitol PLC are working in collaboration with Barnsley Council to prepare the Barnsley West Masterplan Framework document for land south of Barugh Green Road, Barnsley (MU1). The Barnsley West Masterplan Framework area is located 2km west of Barnsley town centre, on land between the communities of Gawber, Higham, Pogmoor, Redbrook and Barugh Green and immediately north-east of Junction 37 of the M1 motorway. The Masterplan Framework area contains open fields, which were previously an open-cast mine and later refilled.

The site is allocated for development within the Barnsley Local Plan, adopted in January 2019 under Local Plan reference MU1. The plan proposes a mixed-use development to provide around 1,700 new homes and 43 hectares of employment land.

The plan also includes:
- A new primary school
- Small shops and community facilities
- Brand-new infrastructure, including an access link road
- Open green space with wildlife corridors, watercourses and key pedestrian and cycle paths

As part of the Masterplan Framework residents and stakeholders need to be provided with the opportunity to feedback on the draft plans and main themes. The feedback will be reviewed and fed into the final Masterplan Framework. The final Masterplan Framework will need to be approved by Cabinet before determining any planning applications for the development of the site.
