Hoyland Town Square redevelopment to begin in New Year

Work is starting in the New Year on the transformation of a town square in Hoyland as part of our multi-million regeneration programme to improve local economies and support high streets across the borough.

The works are being undertaken by Barnsley-based business, AmcoGiffen, who will start on works in the New Year. While this work is underway there will be some disruption to the footpaths and highways.

Cllr Robert Frost, cabinet spokesperson for Regeneration and Culture, said: “Our principal Towns investment work is all about making sure you have local access to shops, markets, restaurants, and a diverse night-time economy in your local community.

We have made the decision to avoid disruption in the run-up to Christmas, so we look forward to these improvements getting underway in the New Year.”

Dave Thomas, Operations Director for AmcoGiffen, said: “As a local company, we are proud to deliver this work in Hoyland. The works will take around four weeks and once complete the improvements will make a huge difference to the town centre.

“Construction work will start in the New Year after the busy festive period. We recognise it’s a crucial time for Hoyland’s shops, pubs, and restaurants and we wouldn’t want to cause any disruption at this time by starting any earlier.

“We’re getting all the materials together now and we’re eager to start work to do our bit to regenerate Hoyland town centre for residents, workers and visitors.”
