Local Plan Consultation Draft 2014 - 10/11/14

Barnsley Metropolitan Borough Council (BMBC) are currently producing a Local Plan for Barnsley which will replace the existing Unitary Development Plan and Core Strategy.  The Local Plan will identify and allocate a range of site to meet the development needs of Barnsley.  Barnsley west has already been identified as a potential employment site in the 2012 Draft Development Sites and Places Document.  The current Consultation Draft Local Plan identifies the site as a Mixed Use allocation including employment and housing uses.  The consultation period for this latest document runs from Monday 10th November until Sunday 21st December 2014.
