Work starts on converting 12 properties into council homes in Kingstone

We’re excited that work has started today on converting 12 properties into┬ácouncil homes in Kingstone.
Berneslai Homes and Barnsley Council has started work on the conversion and refurbishment of the former NHS staff accommodation & offices at Keresforth Close, (off Broadway) Kingstone.
Local contractor O&P Construction have been appointed to carry out the work to 11 three bed and one four bed houses which will be ready for letting to people from the councils waiting list in June / July 2019. Local members see the new homes being an important contribution to improving the availability of social rented housing in the area.
The homes are in a great location within easy walking distance of local primary/ secondary schools and 15 minutes from Barnsley Town Centre. The development is a key part of wider plans for the regeneration of the area.
