BARNSLEY Council will unveil its plans for the town centre's redevelopment on Friday.

An artist's impression of the new-look centre, plans for the development area and timescales will all be available here.

Improvements have already started, with several streets already undergoing cosmetic changes such new street lighting, furniture, resurfaced roads and paving.

Most notably, a major demolition on Shambles Street has begun, with Barnsley Central Library and its neighbouring buildings being flattened to make may for Barnsley College's new £17 million sixth form.

Coun Roy Miller, cabinet spokesperson for place, said: "People visiting will see that some preparation work has already started. In the Cheapside shopping precinct, planters and bollards have been taken out so we can install the outdoor market.

"We'll really put the market and retail shopping back in the heart of our town."

Once the proposals are launched, there will be a six-week consultation period where residents are encouraged to give feedback to help shape the plans.
