Concern over plan for social housing on field in Barnsley

Have your say

Residents in a South Yorkshire community have launched a campaign to save a field earmarked for a new housing development.

The ‘Save our Field’ campaign was set up after housing developer Berneslai Homes applied for planning permission for new social housing on land off Cobnar Lane, Elsecar, Barnsley.

Local residents are concerned about the plans for the Barnsley Council-owned field, which has been used as a play area and football pitch by local children for more than 55 years.

Residents have until tomorrow to lodge objections.
