Hoyland Town Centre
Project: New Town Centre Development
Location: Hoyland, Barnsley
Self Architects were commissioned to develop an exciting retail and residential scheme and gain planning approval for the redevelopment of three sites in the centre of Hoyland, comprising:
- Site A - Demolition of the existing NHS Health Centre on Duke Street, which had moved to the new Hoyland Centre, and creation of a new 79 space public car park with ECV charging point.
- Site B – The demolition of the existing church hall, wc’s and retail kiosks, and the relocation of the existing Hoyland Market on Market Street, to Site C, making way for a new retail park and car park.
- Site C – The redevelopment of the existing Hoyland Town Hall offices includes the change of use of 2 floors of empty office space for residential apartments, the construction of a new Boyes store and 2 retail units, and the provision of 30 market stalls with contemporary lightweight glazed kiosks for the relocated Hoyland Market.
The interrelated scheme is designed to improve the retail experience, enhance parking provision in the town, add to housing stock and visually enhance the built environment in Hoyland by creating an uplifting contemporary environment in which to shop and live.
Self Architects successfully gained planning approval for the whole scheme, including a new Netto store on Site B.
The car park on Site A was completed and opened to the public in early 2016, and the demolition and redevelopment of Site B was commenced in mid-2016. However, the decision by Sainsbury’s to pull out of all new Netto stores in July 2016 put a hold on the development of Site B.
Self Architects worked closely with the developer Resilienti to develop an alternative retail park on Site B, which has now recommenced construction for a new client, with two further units and new kiosks currently being considered by Barnsley Planning Department.
In the meantime, the creation of the Town Hall retail area and Hoyland Market relocation has been successfully completed, delivering a vibrant retail quarter to the town.
