New retail plans for Thurnscoe

SHOP units are to replace a former Thurnscoe pub that closed in 2010.

Barnsley planners have given the thumbs-up to a full re-development of the site of the Thurnscoe Hotel on Houghton Road.

Planning permission is outline only at this stage. Full planning permission for a more detailed plan is required before any building work can take place by developer Robert Suret.
