Green light for 84 new homes in Mansfield

03 August 2023

Our Nottingham region has been given a resolution to grant - subject to signing Section 106 agreement - by Mansfield District Council for the development of 84 new homes within Mansfield.

The development – located off Broomhill Lane – will bring previously vacant land adversely affected by fly tipping and anti-social behaviour into residential use.

Bringing a mix of new homes to the area, the development will help to meet local housing needs. 10% of properties will be affordable homes, split between Rent, Discount Market Sale and First Homes – a new Government initiative to help first time buyers get onto the property ladder. The new development will introduce connectivity between Chesterfield Road and Broomhill Lane via Mount Street and Albion Street, alleviating pressure on local junctions during peak times.

The proposal supports infrastructure delivery and community benefits totalling c. £900,000, boosting the local area via Section 106 contributions.

The contributions will include funding for improvements to Berry Hill Park’s biodiversity, junction improvements across Mansfield, free bus passes to residents on site, healthcare, secondary and post-16 education, and a contribution towards a new recycling centre.

Carl Oxley, Land Director at Nottingham region said: “We’re delighted to have received committee approval for our development at Broomhill Lane and I want to thank Mansfield District Council for their support. Not only will the development deliver 84 quality new homes, it will also create local jobs as part of the construction and generate a significant investment in the local economy.

“We’re committed to creating vibrant, successful communities and supporting more local families in getting their dream homes. We’re looking forward to our new community taking shape over the course of 2023.”
