Barnsley 2030. Barnsley - the place of possibilities


Barnsley's vision and ambition for 2030

The vision for Barnsley Council is Barnsley - the place of possibilities. This builds on our past which has influenced the fabric of the borough and experiences of many Barnsley residents, and the borough’s success over recent years.

By 2030 we want everyone to benefit from and contribute to making our borough a thriving place of possibilities.

Everyone has an important role in working together to make our ambitions for the borough possible and improve the lives of residents. This includes our residents and organisations across the private, public, voluntary and community sectors all working together.  

Barnsley’s already a great place and we want to do more. This vision drives our Council Plan, demonstrating our commitment to making it happen. We’ll concentrate on providing services where they’re most needed and will have the most impact. And we’ll help people to do more for each other and their community.

We’re committed to developing skills, talent and creativity among people of all ages, creating exciting prospects, meeting the demands of the future economy and making Barnsley a better place to be.

At the heart of all of this are the proud people of Barnsley. It’s about celebrating and championing what makes our borough special to inspire others and work together to make an even better Barnsley.
