What would you like to see in Mansfield town centre?

How do you think Mansfield town centre should look in five, 10 or 15 years from now?

Now is the time to have your say on ambitious plans for its future redevelopment.

A consultation on Mansfield District Council’s draft town centre masterplan has been extended to 5pm on 23 December 2021.

The masterplan provides a vision and delivery plan that will guide new development over the next 15 years, while preserving the town’s industrial history and heritage assets.

The document sets out potential options for each quarter of the town as well as for specific buildings including The Town Mill, Beales and the Four Seasons Shopping Centre.

Photos of the proposals and maps for key sites will be on display at consultation events where members of the council’s Planning Policy team will be on hand to answer questions.

The remaining events will take place on:

  • Thursday 18 November (10am to 5pm) outside Mansfield Library on West Gate.
  • Thursday 25 November (1pm to 7pm) Turner Hall, Mansfield Woodhouse.
  • Thursday 2 December (1pm to 7pm) The Stable Barn, Warsop Parish Centre, Bishops Walk, Church Warsop. 

You can also view a copy of the document at the Civic Centre and at each library in the district. Please check opening times and follow the COVID-19 measures that are in place.

Executive Mayor Andy Abrahams said: “This is the most important document relating to Mansfield town centre’s future regeneration that has been published in recent years. While it contains an overall vision for the town centre’s development over the next 15 years, nothing in it has been set in stone. Your views are important to us and we want as many people as possible to provide comments and ideas to help us shape Mansfield."

You can find further information about the masterplan on the council’s planning consultation webpage.

You can also email lp@mansfield.gov.uk or write to the Planning Policy Team, Mansfield District Council, Civic Centre, Chesterfield Road South, Mansfield, NG19 7BH.

The draft masterplan document provides guidance for the future redevelopment of 16 key sites, with various exciting, forward-thinking options that would completely transform Mansfield into a vibrant place where more people want to spend time and money.

Major projects could include student accommodation at Clumber House, the redevelopment of White Hart Street to provide quality urban homes, redesigning the Market Place into a garden square suitable for a variety of uses, turning Beales into a hub for public services, and adding activity to the iconic arches of the viaduct.

Feedback on the masterplan will be incorporated in a final draft before it is considered for adoption early next year.
