Hoyland is a town near Barnsley in Northern England. The town developed from the hamlets of Upper Hoyland, Hoyland, and Hoyland Common.The town has also been known as Nether Hoyland. That name was given to it to prevent confusion with High Hoyland. When the urban district council was formed the name they used was Hoyland Nether Urban District Council. This was also applied to the area run by Hoyland UDC. However, most locals have always known it simply as Hoyland.Hoyland is part of the metropolitan borough of Barnsley in the metropolitan county of South Yorkshire, but it lies within the historic boundaries of West Riding of Yorkshire. In 2001 it had a population of 15,497.Hoyland Nether Urban District CouncilHoyland Nether UDC was formed in 1894. Its jurisdiction covered Elsecar, Hoyland Common, Platts Common and Skiers Hall (until 1938, when boundary changes took place Alderthwaite and part of Harley) were administered by Hoyland. This land was exchanged with Rotherham RDC for some land in Brampton Bierlow, which included the site of Elsecar Main colliery, as well as Hoyland itself. It lasted until 1974 at which point it was merged into Barnsley MBC. The town hall is still standing and is used for offices and the local Jobcentre.Recently, the town centre received funding for a makeover of its Central square, the out-dated wooden fixtures and concrete/brick flower beds were removed and replaced by white stone modern and metallic benches and foliage. This revival improved the look of the town along with a regenerated more secure market place hopefully bringing more money into this otherwise deprived community.
