Masterplan frameworks

Barnsley’s Local Plan includes some site allocations which require the production of a masterplan framework. The individual site policies explain why a masterplan framework is needed.

What is a masterplan framework?

Where masterplan frameworks are being sought, they will contain the following:

  • planning policy summary
  • site location and description
  • land ownership
  • a summary of the existing evidence
  • site evaluation (opportunities and constraints)
  • land use framework
  • sustainable movement framework
  • protection of existing pubic rights of way routes and their incorporation within new development layouts
  • vehicular movement framework
  • green and blue infrastructure framework
  • place-making framework (including design guides for character and neighbourhood areas where applicable)
  • sustainability and energy use
  • health and well being
  • design evolution
  • conceptual masterplan
  • infrastructure and delivery phasing

Masterplan frameworks are subject to public consultation and approval by the council prior to the determination of any planning applications on the affected sites.

Each masterplan framework will be bespoke and therefore be considered on a case by case basis.
