Plans To Redevelop Hoyland Revealed

Tuesday February 25 2014

We Are Barnsley We Are Barnsley

PLANS to breathe new life into Hoyland town centre will be announced by the council at the end of next month.

The council originally had a masterplan to redevelop the town centre when the Hoyland Centre opened - with a proposal to use the site of the town hall for retail ventures, with the market being relocated.

A council spokesman said: "Although this masterplan has taken longer to develop than envisaged due to the economic downturn, we have sufficient retail interest so that a multi-site proposal is being evaluated with a view to sharing this more widely within the next few months."

I always think if you have nothing positive to say,dont spend all your time moaning about stupid senseless things.
A. what has the 66 bus got to do with anything.
B. jump is a village with shops fish shop
butchers post office and if you hadnt noticed its a very small village.
Hoyland is a small town.
If your going to rant on about things ask why there is more chemists and nhs crap occupying most of the town centre is everybody sick in hoyland and its environs.

I think it's a great idea. It needs some work and life putting back in to hoyland.

Roads need resurfacing and a clamp down on the number of fast food places too!

It used to be a nice place, a nice little town and it's lost that!

I think something needs doing! I love my trips into the centre when the kids are at school but I find myself going into Hoyland & being disappointed! There's nothing there that people actually need! Like Ash says, it's just full of take aways! The only thing I use is the co-op & it's overpriced!!! Put a little Wilkos there & a poundland! Things like that! I hate having to pay £4 just to get the little essentials I need because I can't get them locally!

Hoyland is so boring
The shops always sell the same things and it would be nice to have a change around the place :)

Chapel town is only a small town and it as more banks, more shops and even as kfc , dominos and Pizza Hut . Hoyland could do with something similar . And it needs popular shops which will attract more customers
