Cllr Sir Steve Houghton CBE, Leader of Barnsley Council, said, “I went to assess the development works in Hoyland town centre with local ward councillors and council officers. It’s clear that some of the work isn’t finished and needs to be done. This work will be completed in the coming days.
"There’s more work needed in this area of Hoyland town centre and we’re committing to a second phase of development. If that means additional expenditure from the Principal Town’s programme, then that’s what we’ll do so that it meets the standards that local residents, businesses and visitors deserve and should rightly expect from the council.
While this work is happening, we remain committed to supporting Hoyland’s high street and local economy to thrive. We'll hold more activities and events such as free face painting and balloon modelling, a youth market, and live music playing throughout March and April."
