Fireworks mark Barnsley office demolition

Posted on by

FIREWORKS were launched into the sky yesterday to mark the beginning of the end for the council’s old offices.

Built in the 1970s for what was then South Yorkshire Council Council, the office building is now being demolished in the first phase of a £100 million town centre revamp called Better Barnsley.

Councillor Roy Miller commented to the BBC: “This is the first major part of the demolition. We’ve been taking out some of the insides for some weeks now but now we’re going to actually start demolition.”

The demolition of the council offices is due to take eight weeks and then a temporary market structure will be erected in its place before a new market square is developed by 2019.
