Latest phase of £130m Barnsley development underway

£130m Barnsley development

Featured Market Lead alert from Tracker Intelligence

Planning permission has been granted for the next phase of the £130m Barnsley development scheme known as Glass Works in Barnsley town centre.

The 9.4-acre, £130m development scheme funded by Barnsley Council is set to transform the heart of the town centre.


Keeping you one step ahead of the competition

Market Leads from Tracker is an amazing tool that gives you instant visibility of potential private sector leads, public sector framework opportunities and pipeline contracts long before they’ve even been tendered.

Large-scale deals like this are supported by many suppliers and having early insight about upcoming tender opportunities is what keeps you ahead of your competition. Once a contract has been awarded, there are potentially many further opportunities to win work as a sub-contractor.  With Tracker you can grow your network and make direct contact with the right people.



Construction has already started on the initial phase of the scheme, which includes a new Library @ the Lightbox and a contemporary transformation of the Metropolitan Centre, which will provide a brand-new home for the town’s famous markets. Both are scheduled to open next year.

The second stage of the development will begin in autumn 2018 and develop 25 new retail units and ten family-friendly restaurants, framing a new public square and shopping route.

This phase will also see the delivery of The Glass Works’ two key leisure anchors, a 13-screen Cineworld and Superbowl UK; both signed 20-year leases earlier this year.

Barnsley Council and development manager Queensberry are working towards a completion date of 2020 for the entire scheme.
