Give your views on Barnsley Town Centre

alt=""

Barnsley Council are consulting on a new town centre design and sustainability strategy. They would like your views on a new plan looking at how Barnsley Town Centre can move towards being zero carbon and the direction future development should take.

The draft plan has been prepared by award-winning design and research consultancy Urbed, who points out that while the retail market in places like Barnsley and Sheffield has been significantly affected by the coronavirus outbreak and lockdown restrictions, Barnsley has fared better than many similar towns in the UK. Before the pandemic, Barnsley was bucking the national trend for retail and is in an excellent position to respond to the emerging trends following the pandemic.

You can give your views by completing their online survey by Thursday 30 September at 5pm.  For further information and to give your views please visit their website.
