A HOUSING estate will be developed in Tankersley on council-owned land that used to be a horse paddock.

Equity Housing Group will built 20 new homes on the site at the junction of the A61 and Westwood New Road. The development will include a mix of two and three bed bungalows and houses for rent with shared ownership.

Some funding has been secured through the HCA to help deliver the scheme.

Planning permission was approved by Barnsley Council.
