Tesco planning superstore outlet

Litton Properties has signed a partnership agreement with Tesco to develop proposals for a new superstore on derelict land in Hoyland.

The 10 million-plus scheme involves building a 20,000sq ft store, employing up to 140 people, on the former site of the Hoyland Market Street Primary School. Litton Properties bought the Market Street site from Barnsley Council.

Development director Mark Rothery said: "Over the next few months we will be working hard with Tesco to deliver a scheme which meets the highest design standards and we look forward to presenting initial proposals to local residents in the near future."

A public exhibition is planned for New Year.
