A proposal to undertake a community consultation exercise on the draft Goldthorpe Masterplan Framework has been approved Barnsley Council’s Cabinet members.
The Goldthorpe Masterplan Framework will support significant employment growth in the area.
This masterplan framework covers employment site:
- ES10 - land south of Dearne Valley Parkway
The consultation process will allow residents to help in the shaping and phasing of the development. It is important the consultation goes ahead now, at an early stage in the development, to make sure this is done comprehensively and with involvement of the local community and its stakeholders.
The report to Cabinet includes revised plans for the consultation due to the current situation relating to Covid-19, to make sure that people aren’t excluded and still have the opportunity to shape the Masterplan Framework. This will include a number of ways to access information and for residents to give their views.
The government has stated that planning activity should continue during the current pandemic and that planning is critical to support economic recovery.
The consultation will last for a period of 6 weeks, starting in January, with exact dates publicised over the coming weeks.
