The area is struggling from an identity and people are playing at trying to make it better… the majority of the residents want it to be a better place it is dragged down by a minority.
Connectivity to other areas need to be improved and the HS2 branch line would be great for the area. The bus service connect to Doncaster and Barnsley but struggles with other areas.
Education is a real issue and I feel for the majority of schools, class sizes should be reduced and more intense learning. People in this area are not generally from privileged backgrounds and therefore a better education system is required.
Access to jobs needs to be improved and I agree with other posts that more incentives need to be offer to attract the right jobs. The Aldi distribution is a good example but most of the top jobs have people from outside the area in those roles, Goldthorpe is not a place for down and outs, but that is how it is treated.
