OUTLINE planning permission is being sought to turn a shop into three new shops.

Applicant Peter Kwapisz is seeking to turn the existing P and J Textiles, in New Street, Barnsley, into three retail units.

The planning application states that P and J has two members of staff, but the three retail units will see four more people employed.

All nearby neighbours have been notified of the plans and a decision will be made on January 10, on whether to allow the change.
