Planning Officials Visit Royston High School Site

Tuesday February 26 2013



PLANNING officials have visited the former Royston High School site to discuss proposals for 143 homes, a supermarket and petrol station on the site.

Kier Property Developments has applied to Barnsley Council to transform the 17-acre former school site, which has been met with fierce objection from residents and councillors Tim Cheetham and Graham Kyte.

Many of the concerns raised are about the impact a supermarket could have on local businesses, the pressure extra cars could have on the village's road infrastructure and some have said it will 'destroy' village life.

Councillors from the planning board want to carry out a site visit before making a final decision on the application, which is listed for approval.

i think they should build a shopping complex with a few market stalls and maybe a few houses and 2 bed flats/apartments. i think the market stalls would offer local ppl to start their own business in trading etc while providing ppl with an opportunity for smaller housing with today's bedroom tax has theres not enough one and two bedroom flats/houses.
