CHANGES to Barnsley Council’s payments service come into force next week - with counter services coming to an end.

From next Thursday, Barnsley Connects will no longer be offering the service at Wombwell Town Hall, Hoyland Town Hall, Penistone Town Hall or Laithes Lane, Athersley.

The offices will continue to provide a full information and enquiry service.

Barnsley Council said: “Customers will need to choose an alternative payment method for housing rent and council tax.”

The council is advising people to set up a direct debit, pay online at, via the automated telephone payments service on 01226 779 397, or by using Allpay Cards at retail outlets and post offices.
