THE future use of Penistone Town Hall is uncertain after Barnsley Council confirmed it was considering removing services it operates from there.

The building - owned by Barnsley Council - is home to its connects service and social services, as well as being used by a host of other organisations.

A Barnsley Council spokesman said it is reviewing usage of the connects service before deciding what action to take.

Cllr Jenny Platts, said: "We are currently reviewing the customer demand on Barnsley Connects at Penistone Town Hall following which we will then consider options going forward." 

The possible move also brings questions about the future of the building and whether Barnsley Council will continue to fund it. Other options include an asset transfer to the town council or leasing it for a nominal fee.
