Big Plans For Hoyland's Proposed Redevelopment

Friday July 4 2014




"NATIONAL retailers" could be on their way to Hoyland town centre as part of its long-awaited redevelopment.

Developers Resilienti, who have been working on the plans for almost two years, says it would like to see some stages of the overall scheme completed before Christmas 2015 "to keep shoppers in the town once the new Tesco opens".

Resilienti development director Kerrie Whiteley said: "We are very close to finalising a development design.

"Resilienti has commitment from all its retail partners who are very keen to come to Hoyland and they're all hopeful the scheme will revitalise the shopping experience in the town."

She could not name the tenants at this stage but said they are "strong national retailers" who will offer goods not already available within the town along with a significant number of jobs.

Looking forward to seeing the plans, but I don't think Hoyland needs 'national retailers'. The success of Hoyland is down to the number & variety of mostly local independent traders. The best thing would be to revive the market which is pretty poor. Would be good if they had things like the continental market visit occasionally.

This is just the kind of thing Hoyland doesn't need, this is a small community, which should continue to enjoy the community spirit that already exists, big national retailers etc, the market needs updating and more market traders to visit, the local shops need to stay, as do all the family stalls and shops that have been a big part of this community for such a long time. We do not have the capacity or the need for national retailers.

Can not wait for more choice, grocery shopping co-op dear and never found tesco to be much better. Competition should be welcome, will benefit the consumer with more choice. If you are worried about the local shops going out of business, don't use the new retailers you have a choice or are you saying the 'bargains' will be too tempting

This can only be good. I opened shop in Holland as I had noted the strong community feel to the place. However it's not doing as well as I'd hoped as people are not shopping here they are going elsewhere. I agree with other comments the market needs redeveloping as part of the plans.
