Developer Resilienti has appointed two contractors to deliver the multi-million pound regeneration of Hoyland town centre, near Barnsley. 

Wath Construction and Britcon will be handling building work on the £4.5m redevelopment project. 

Wath Construction, in Wath-Upon-Dearne, has been responsible for the demolition and site clearance of the former NHS medical centre off Duke Street and the construction of a new 74 space car park on the site, as well as the demolition and site clearance of St Andrews Church Hall, on Market Street Hoyland.  

Wath is currently re-developing the former car park off Southgate which will become the new Hoyland market site with 30 stalls, three kiosks, a disabled toilet, wash room and 26-space car park. 

Lewis Monfredi, director at Wath Construction, said: “We are proud to be appointed as one of the principal contractors on an exciting local project that will regenerate the town and make a real difference to the community. 

“The project is vital to the future of Hoyland and we look forward to creating a vibrant town centre for people to live and work.” 

Building and civil engineering firm Britcon has been appointed as contractor for building a new 12,000 sq ft supermarket, Boyes’ new 6,000 sq ft department store on Market Street, a Ladbrokes betting shop and two other retail outlets. 

John Whitmore, director of Britcon, said: “The redevelopment of Hoyland is a really exciting project. Our team brings a wealth of experience in completing similar public realm improvements and we’re delighted to be working with Resilienti and Barnsley Council on this landmark scheme. 

“As well as building the retail outlets, work is now well underway on Hoyland’s new market, which is being repositioned to its original location on Southgate and is due to open later in spring.” 

Resilienti is working with Barnsley Council to bring new market, retail, car parking and jobs to the town. The project will also see Hoyland’s run-down Town Hall transformed into modern residential and office space. 

Kerrie Whiteley, managing director of Lincolnshire-based Resilienti, said: “Bringing these contractors on board represents a real step forward in our development plans for Hoyland. We look forward to working with them to realise the vision for a revitalised town centre.”
