News - Town hall will 'open next month' (Barnsley)

Barnsley town hall will reopen for business next month, the leader of the council 'has been promised'.

Coun Steve Houghton said work was going according to plan, and the ceremony to elect the new Mayor for the year ahead on May 18 will be the first event in the newly refurbished town hall.

It has been closed for nearly 18 months, as part of a £6m project to create a museum on the ground floor and basement areas.

Councillors and some of their staff will return to offices in the two upper floors.

Meetings of the whole council will also return to the main council chamber.

The meetings have been held at Barnsley Football Club's function suite while it has been closed.

Coun Houghton said: "The facilities at Oakwell have been great, but I think we're all eager to get back into the town hall."
