Barnsley school plans approved

Have your say

Outline plans for a new school in Goldthorpe have been approved.

The primary and nursery will replace the existing stone built Victorian school building at the junction of High Street and Doncaster Road.

It will be built on cleared land where 107 properties have been demolished, businesses relocated and a compulsory purchase order granted to make way as part of the Goldthorpe masterplan.

Councillors say it will create a town centre ‘gateway’ and increase footfall.
