Town Spirit

The story so far

The focus in Hoyland is to develop opportunities for local businesses to create a bustling, safe, high street for residents and visitors to enjoy.

Investment into the town square will improve the shopping experience, and a developed market offer improves the unique proposition of the area.

The local economy and community will benefit from new resources and increased footfall to complement everything that Hoyland has to offer for residents, visitors and businesses.

You can find out more in our video below.
