A BARNSLEY property forum at Tankersley Manor has given people the opportunity to network and find out about proposed development plans.

The event was organised by Barnsley Council and had keynote speakers from the Homes and Communities Agency and Strata Homes.

It was the second of three events planned for the year and focussed on Barnsley’s housing aspirations.

Chris Rowlands, a member of the Barnsley Economic Partnership, said: “The forum allows Barnsley Council to explain property initiatives that they are promoting or involved with, and engages the private sector with a view to working together for the greater good of Barnsley."
