High Streets Across Barnsley Will Be Transformed As Part Of £1m Programme

From Goldthorpe to Grimethorpe and Darfield to Dodworth - 11 areas will see shop fronts and shopping areas transformed thanks to cash from the council and local businesses.

Mapplewell's also among the places getting a makeover. There's been a mixed response from local businesses - some are welcoming the idea while others want to see the cash spent on bringing empty units back to life.
