Residents Meet To Discuss Controversial Pogmoor Land

Wednesday July 20 2011

Dan Jarvis MP Dan Jarvis MP

Barnsley MP Dan Jarvis will meet with residents today in Barnsley Library to discuss a controversial patch of land in Pogmoor.

The land off West Road sparked controversy earlier in the year when developers revealed plans to turn it into a 20-pitch gypsy camp. After those plans were withdrawn, a new plan  - for housing with a creche, care home or convelescence facility - was refused by the council.

Now, residents are worried as they have been told there is a permit on the land that would allow it to be used for a waste site.

The meeting will start at 6.30pm.
