Vacant Mount Vernon Hospital, Mount Vernon Road, Worsborough, Barnsley

This consultation is now closed.  Our clients and Johnson Mowat would like to thank all who contributed to this process.

Background:

On behalf of the South West Yorkshire NHS Trust and Orion Homes, wish to share their proposals for future development of the vacant Mount Vernon Hospital, Mount Vernon Road, Worsbrough, Barnsley.

It is Orion Homes’ intention to develop 66 new family homes on this site following demolition of the existing hospital, to assist in meeting the local need for housing in the Barnsley area.

We are currently preparing a full planning application on behalf of the South West Yorkshire NHS Trust and Orion Homes. The proposal will also include the provision of open space around the edge of the site for public use including the retention of the existing trees to the south of the site.
