A NEW Taco Bell restaurant is set to open in Barnsley.

Plans for the popular chain to open a new branch on the edge of Hoyland Common are moving forward, years after initial planning permission for the project was granted.

The firm has put detailed proposals for the Mexican restaurant to Barnsley Council.

If approved, it will occupy part of the Gateway 36 site which has already been developed with a new pub, warehousing and another take-away.
