A FORMER school site in Barnsley could be transformed into a £10million shopping complex.

Rothstone Estates has big plans for the site on which Foulstone School once stood in Darfield, with supermarket giants Sainsbury's and Lidl having already agreed terms.

The application, which is set to be submitted to Barnsley Council, will create around 80 jobs if the plans are approved.

The Nanny Marr Road development will also include a 180-space car park and a mix of two and three-bedroom houses.

A number of public consultation sessions to give residents the chance to view the plans are being held in Darfield this month.

The managing director of Rothstone Estates, Mark Rothery, said: "This would provide a much-needed boost to local retail facilities as well as a significant number of jobs.

"Currently, Darfield residents have limited choice, so many people have to travel out of the village to shop. The scheme would provide access to shops which meet the needs of the local community."
