Just under half of the old housing in Kendray has been demolished and replaced with fields, large recreational areas and modern housing. An amphitheatre and playground has been built on one of the old sites, and new housing is being constructed on the other remaining sites. There are also plans to build a leisure centre nearby.
Recent regeneration has seen new housing replacing old and unusable housing, turning it into a more modern estate. Continued building is ongoing (2007/08). Current amenities and services available include a play area in the centre, local shopping, a post office, medical centre, schooling for juniors and a football ground with numerous artificial pitches available.
Barnsley Academy (High School) also sits in Kendray taking up to 900 pupils not including the sixth form. The Forest Academy (Primary School) previously named "Kendray Primary" until 2013 also sits in Kendray.
This was established to manage the neighbourhood by local residents, the Council and others in 1999.
