Consultation Summary:

This consultation seeks the community’s views on the emerging Masterplan Framework. The Goldthorpe Masterplan Framework area is located to the west of Goldthorpe, the south of the A635 and includes site allocation ES10. The Masterplan Framework sites have already been allocated for development within the adopted Local Plan.  Site ES10 is land allocated for employment uses and is 72.9 hectares.

The details for the Masterplan Framework can be found on the consultation display boards which are available to view:

The council is seeking your views on the draft Goldthorpe Masterplan Framework below, during the consultation period which runs from Monday 25 January 2021 10am to Monday 8 March 2021 5pm.

The information you provide will only be used for the purposes of this consultation exercise. All feedback will be considered and changes to the proposals will be made where possible and appropriate. The final Masterplan Framework will need to be approved by Barnsley’s Full Council before adoption. The data you have submitted will be held securely by Barnsley Council in accordance with General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).


Each Council is required by Government to produce a Development Plan.  The Barnsley Local Plan was adopted by the Council in January 2019 following five years of work by the council, including several public consultations and a two year public examination. During the examination of the plan by a Planning Inspector, it was agreed that for some larger strategic sites, a Masterplan Framework should be prepared. The purpose of this 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 Goldthorpe Masterplan Framework. We’re looking for your opinion on a number of areas, including landscaping proposals, biodiversity enhancements and layout.
