Developer Forum

The developer forum is part of our proactive approach to improve the delivery of schemes with planning permission, schemes that have yet to proceed and also encourage new schemes to come forward. In addition, the forum intends to create open and transparent channels of communication between developers and officers, which in turn will improve our working relationship with you and improve the pre-application and planning application processes.

Please note that the Developer Forum is an invitation only event. If you are interested in attending this event, please email us at lp@mansfield.gov.uk
