Take a look at the BMBC Local Development Framework soon to be the Local Plan

You should all visit the BMBC website and view the Local Development Framework which is Barnsley Council’s plan for development of the borough over the next 13 years. The plan shows a need for up to 1100 houses in Penistone West.

This PDF document is interesting as it marks some of the possible locations for review or to be retained as open space

However, you should visit the LDF site and take time to view the plans for our area. A second phase and opportunity for public consultation should be available to us soon. I understand the LDF will become the Local Plan.

Take a look at the website, by clicking here

and also open up the map

which is quite a large file. You should then be able to move the map to view your particular area.

The Penistone Town Community Led Parish Plan is published!

Make sure you visit and look for the Penistone Town Council Community Led Parish Plan. It was released on 20th July 2013, and contains many aspirations of our community. There are many actions in each section which need following up, and BMBC are reviewing it. Hopefully they will adopt the plan promptly.

Please ensure you take a look at this import document for our parish community of Ingbirchworth, Penistone, Springvale, Cubley, Millhouse Green, and Thurlstone.

Dransfield are progressing well with the Phase 2 redevelopment of Penistone town centre

No doubt most of you will have already seen the new build taking shape on St Marys Street in Penistone. It looks like the developer is making good progress. With any luck we should see the ground floor development ready for occupancy from November 2013, and the top floor from February 2014.

Already, I have been told 6 out of the 7 units are already either taken or in negotiation. I do hope that this will become a great benefit in the heart of our town.
