Residents of Tankersley and Pilley have been asked to contribute to BMBCs Hoyland West Consultation.

The vision of the Hoyland West project is to:

“create a sustainable, high-quality development on the western edge of Holland, providing a pleasant environment in which to live and work. The employment-led development would deliver 49ha of offices, light industry, warehousing and distribution units, along with around 100 new homes, and associated infrastructure. The proposed spine road will connect Hoyland West to the strategic road network, while providing additional benefit to existing Hoyland residents and businesses by reducing traffic along Sheffield Road. The proposals will respond positively to the surrounding environment, and will be set within Green infrastructure.”

The consultation will run from 10am on Thursday 7 May 2020 to 5pm on Thursday 18 June 2020 so there is limited time to send your views to BMBC. The full details of the proposed development can be accessed at:

There are no meetings planned to discuss the proposals due to the current issues with the Covid 19 virus.

To send in your views you will need to register on the BMBC website below. Please be aware that this takes a while for your registration to be completed in the system, so if you want to send in any views don’t wait until the last minute.


For those that do not have internet access the Parish Council, a copy of the Masterplan document and the questionnaire can be obtained from Hoyland Tesco.

The masterplan framework covers employment site:

• ES13 – land west of Sheffield Road
and housing site:
• HS57 – land at Tankersley Lane
Included in the plan are options for Tankersley Lane, the relocating of the Rockingham Sports Ground, landscaping and design proposals for the employment areas, and a new housing estate.
The Parish Council has been seeking feedback from residents and other interested parties as it will also be responding to BMBCs request for feedback on the proposals. This will be ongoing until the consultation deadline. So far there is a view that Tankersley Lane should be kept open to vehicles to provide the current level of access to shops and amenities at Hoyland Common, avoiding an alternative route that would mean driving via the motorway roundabout at Birdwell. It has also been suggested that the size and colours of the new employment units are important to lower the visual impact of new structures, and that noise and light pollution should be kept to a minimum.
