Objection to gyratory proposals at Penny Pie Park

Barnsley Civic Trust has made a formal objection to the current proposals to construct a traffic gyratory system at the junction of Broadway, Dodworth Road and Pogmoor Road.

The planning application would see much of Penny Pie Park lost and a three-lane road encircling a substantial part of the remaining greenspace.

We are not convinced from the available evidence that the proposals would solve the existing traffic congestion.

In our view the perceived benefits do not outweigh the level of harm resulting from the proposals.
