Each Council is required by Government to produce a Development Plan.  The Barnsley Local Plan was adopted by the Council in January 2019.  This was the culmination of 5 years work by the Council, including several public consultations and a 2 year public examination The Barnsley Local Plan was adopted in January 2019 and it was agreed during the Examination of the Plan that for some larger strategic sites a Masterplan Framework should be prepared. The purpose of such a Framework is to ensure that sites can be developed in a comprehensive manner, taking into account all infrastructure requirements. This will ensure that strategic site allocations are brought forward in a sustainable way that secures inclusive growth that reflects each of the Council’s corporate priorities.

The Masterplan Framework is a strategic document that sits beneath the Local Plan and will inform future planning applications.

Further Information


It is important for the council to produce a Masterplan Framework to establish the infrastructure requirements and deliver sustainable and inclusive growth.  The absence of a framework could result in developers and landowners bringing forward planning applications to develop their own sites without properly considering how they relate to the wider area and without each party contributing their fair share towards overall infrastructure requirements.

The purpose of this consultation is to provide the opportunity to shape the Hoyland South Masterplan Framework. Public opinion is being sought on a number of areas, including highways options and landscaping proposals.
