Barnsley West

Spawforths identified the opportunity for substantial green belt release to deliver this 124 hectare site. Following extensive consultation with Barnsley Council, it was decided that the scheme would deliver a new link road to the M1, as well as 1700 new homes, a primary school and 34 hectares of employment land.

This green belt release was the largest in South Yorkshire, and the Planning Inspector supported the allocation due to the strength of evidence that was presented.

Our integrated Planning, Masterplanning, and Stakeholder teams worked cohesively to address significant technical and environmental constraints to bring forward this exciting urban extension.

Spawforths provided Planning, Masterplanning, and Consultation services.
