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.

The masterplan frameworks

Barnsley West

Barnsley Council is working in collaboration with developers Strata Homes and Sterling Capitol PLC to prepare the Barnsley West masterplan framework document for land south of Barugh Green Road, Barnsley (MU1).

The Barnsley West masterplan framework area is located 2km west of Barnsley town centre on land between the communities of Gawber, Higham, Pogmoor, Redbrook and Barugh Green, and immediately north-east of Junction 37 of the M1 motorway. The masterplan framework area contains open fields, which were previously an open-cast mine and later refilled.

The site is allocated for development within the adopted Local Plan and can accommodate around 1,700 new homes and 43 hectares of employment land. Alongside housing and employment land the draft masterplan framework also includes:

  • a new primary school
  • small shops and community facilities
  • brand-new infrastructure, including an access link road
  • open green space with wildlife corridors, watercourses and key pedestrian and cycle paths.
