Campaigners Fight Against Barnsley Council Greenbelt Plans

Campaigners from Barugh Green, Gawber and Higham are fighting council plans to build new homes and office facilities on green belt land.

It is as Barnsley Council's local plan - which considers the future use of all land within the borough - goes into its third stage of public examination.

Local campaigner John Earnshaw isn't happy with the proposals - and reckons the council should reconsider the land us. He would rather see the redevelopment of brownfield sites.
