Barnsley 2030

What is Barnsley 2030?

Barnsley 2030 is a fantastic opportunity to work together to tell the story of our borough - so we can visualise a future for everyone.

A lot can change in a short amount of time, so we need to start thinking about how the Barnsley borough might be different in 2030.

The project isn’t just for the council, or any other single organisation or business; it’s for all of us. Telling us your thoughts will help us understand the challenges you feel you're facing, and your ambitions.

Bringing Barnsley's story to life...

With your input we'll work with an independent company to identify the key themes, and to start to create Barnsley's story. By working together we can then turn these ambitions into reality.

Barnsley 2030 doesn't just focus on the town centre; it's about what each and every one of us does across the borough that makes Barnsley the place that it is. 

Fill in our survey

Try not to limit your thoughts - be bold with your answers, particularly when thinking about what the future could hold!

The survey closes at 11.59pm on Sunday 1 March 2020.

As a thank you for your contribution you can opt-in to a prize draw to win a £10 voucher to spend at Barnsley MarketsTerms and conditions apply.
