Saunderson Road, Penistone

Orion Homes

This consultation is now closed.  Orion Homes would like to thank all who contributed their thoughts, comments and ideas.  These are now being considered against the draft plans prior to a detailed planning application being submitted.


Orion Homes are to submit a detailed planning application for the development of land off Saunderson Road, Penistone.

The site has been identified as a preferred site for residential development and included in Barnsley Council’s emerging Local Plan.  This plan sets out the Council’s proposed land uses and residential allocations across the District.  This means that the question of should this site be developed has been decided.  The site meets the Council’s own criteria for providing much needed housing in the area and is key to delivering this.  Therefore, in line with the Council’s own expectations, Orion Homes propose to develop this site to accommodate circa 24 new homes.

Orion Homes have prepared a draft layout of the site consulted residents within the vicinity for their views.  A leaflet available to download here:    Saunderson-Road-Leaflet-25012017.pdf (528 downloads)    was distributed to local residents.
