Farmfoods Plan For Former Pub Site

Friday December 5 2014

A FARMFOODS store could be built on the site of a pub if planning bosses give the green light.

The company has applied to demolish the former Athersley Arms building and construct a new premises.

The application said the property had been bought by Farmfoods and will be traded by them once the alterations are complete.

The position of the building would be set back from Rotherham Road with the main car park in front.

What do you think? Is it a good idea? Have your say below.

It would be nice to have a Farm Foods in Barnsley. I like shopping at Farm Foods but Hemsworth is too far to travel. It is nice also that it is not in the town centre as it is rare that I go into town. Looking forward to shopping there when it is built.

I think it's a dreadful place for a Farm Foods store. There's a massive shortage of housing in Barnsley and this land should have been used for houses. Shops like this belong in shopping areas such as Barnsley town centre where there is a lack of high street shops.
