A COUNCIL report has highlighted potential locations for new gypsy and traveller sites in Barnsley.

Sites in Darfield and Carlton have been earmarked as ideal locations for new gypsy sites as the council has been told by the government that it must provide space for 39 more pitches by 2016.

One suggested location is behind the former filling station on Doncaster Road (on land which borders with Ardsley), and the other is on land to the south of Shaw Lane, Carlton.

The plans are now out for public consultation and will be available to view at Wombwell Library on August 10 from 10am-2pm.
