The Hoyland Centre

The Hoyland Centre will create a landmark facility in Hoyland town centre, in a prominent location in the centre of the retail/commercial area.

The facility occupies three sites (main building and two car parks) that were previously used as retail, leisure and scrub land. Facilities on the sites were in a poor state of repair and in need of regeneration. The facility will act as a catalyst for the regeneration of Hoyland town centre and is seen as phase 1 of a much wider regeneration plan which includes the demolition of the Town Hall and construction of new retail and business incubation units plus the formation of a new town square that will accommodate a new demountable market, community artwork, recreational areas and community events.

Services on offer from the new centre will include a Barnsley Connects Contact Centre, giving access to Local Authority Services, a community library and learning centre, children and family services, community learning kitchen, community facilities, access to universal advice and self help, GP services, district nursing, school nursing, health visiting, community medical officer, podiatry, family planning, mental health, physiotherapy, substance misuse, speech therapy, dietetics, CAMHS, management of referrals to secondary care, minor/day surgery, diagnostic services, chronic disease management, acute illness care, post operative rehabilitation care, provisions to accommodate a mobile diagnostic unit and pharmacy and refreshment services.

The Hoyland Centre has been being carefully planned to offer an inclusive, modern environment, around a central public area which offers a meet and greet/reception area, waiting area, public displays, community artwork, community rooms and a Changing Places fully accessible toilet. Access to consulting/treatment rooms, staff and non-public areas will be controlled. The total Gross Internal Area (GIA) is 2,726 m2 arranged over two floors, with the majority of public interface areas being accessed from the ground floor. An external courtyard area is included to introduce natural lighting into the large facility. Due to the town centre location, car parking is provided offsite but adjacent the facility. Public transport links are excellent.

The facility is designed and will be constructed to achieve a BREEAM Excellent certification which ensures excellence in design and sustainability. The centre will incorporate renewable energy technologies, reducing its carbon footprint and lowering energy costs. The design has been developed with a view to mitigate the buildings impact on the surrounding environment in terms of choice of materials, construction activities; ecological impact, life cycle and running costs.

The facility will be operational from August 2011 and will incorporate large scale community artwork.
