Penistone Arches Shop / House Plan Refused

Monday May 28 2012



A PLAN to convert the historic 'coal drop' arches in Penistone into shops - with new houses being built on site - has been refused by the council.

Mr M Shibl submitted an application to Barnsley Council to convert the historic coal drops - the arches which were used in the 1800s to drop coal from the railway line - and the former railways house (Regency House).

The plan includes a proposal to convert the coal drops into shops and offices, featuring a cafe. Regency House would be converted into consulting rooms and the former workshop would be demolished with 13 houses and two live/ work units being added to the site on St. Mary's Street.

Six objections went submitted to the plan - claiming that the shops would create noise and disturbance. There were also objections to the housing development.

Councillors on the planning board refused the application.
