Local businesses, residents and visitors all want to be back at town and city centres to enjoy social life and cultural heritage. 

But with retail vacancy rates on a high, office buildings abandoned and bars and pubs closed, how can Yorkshire’s towns and city centres recover from the impacts of Covid19? 

The Glass Works in Barnsley could be a role model for any economic and social recovery as it brings together Barnsley’s heritage with its award-winning market, new shops, restaurants, library and community hub.

Join us at 12pm for a presentation with Head of Planning and Building Control at Barnsley Metropolitan Borough Council Joe Jenkinson. 

There will also be a follow up discussion and Q&A with the audience. 

The link to the webinar will be sent out a day before the event.
