Following additional information provided for the planning application for the proposed gyratory at Penny Pie Park, Barnsley Civic Trust reiterated its objection to the planning application and stated that in our view the proposal does not provide an adequate solution to the present traffic-flow problem.
It does however cause increased noise and pollution by fumes close to existing housing as well as taking away much of the green space used by local people.
