Oxspring is a small but growing village community of under 500 households nestling in the eastern foothills of the Pennines a short journey from Barnsley and the M1. Sheffield, Wakefield, Leeds and Manchester are all within a 30 miles radius.
First of all thank you to all those residents of the village who took the time to reply to our brief questionnaire relating to the above. The questionnaire was sent out in response to the proposals sent out to some residents regarding Yorkshire Land's Proposals to build some 150 houses on land adjacent to Oxspring Football fields.
No matter what age you are, if you find it difficult to use standard public transport then you can apply to use a Door 2 Door service instead.
Door 2 Door services are designed for people who cannot use standard public transport.
Each service will pick you up from your home and can take you around your local area and beyond.
Door 2 Door is great for meeting new people,making new friends and being able to visit places you couldn’t get to before.
If you want to travel to the town centre or a local supermarket, Shopper Bus is the best service for you. It offers transport from your home on a Monday or Thursday.
Oxspring Parish Council have recently objected to a planning application for 4 dwellings on land adjacent to Millstones, Oxspring. To view the Parish Councils objection comments please view this:
