Mansfield town centre regeneration

Ben has been instrumental in bringing forward a new plan and vision for the future, seeking funding and helping business to bring investment and revitalise our town centre.

We secured £12.3m in the Towns Fund for new projects, plus match funding, and will bid further in to the Levelling Up Fund for town centre projects related to the Town Centre Masterplan (which is here: 2021_09_28_00020099_210917_Draft Mansfield Masterplan Report - FINAL_low res.pdf

In addition, a £75m+ Severn Trent project, supported by Government, will introduce new green spaces to the town centre in 2022, alongside more than £20m of private sector investment in regeneration, including new restaurants and hotels. 


Ben Bradley MP welcomes the Great British Spring Clean

Mansfield MP, Ben Bradley, is encouraging residents across Mansfield and Warsop to take part in this year’s Great British Spring Clean. He is hoping that residents will take part in local litter picking events and help clean up the local area.

Improving our transport links

Good to hear that the County Council have successfully progressed to the next phase of the Government's Rural Mobility Fund, which means we can now submit a detailed business case for improvements to local bus services in the County, including across Mansfield and the surrounding area.

Boost in jobs and dining experiences in Mansfield

Some really positive news that three chain restaurants are set to move into Mansfield, boosting jobs and dining experiences. Taco Bell, Tim Hortons, and Domino’s Pizza have made a £12m proposal to move into the former bus station facility.

Levelling up

It’s been just over a year since Boris became our Prime Minister and stood on the steps of Downing Street setting out his vision for uniting and levelling up the Country.

Supporting High Street Businesses

You may have seen me in yesterday's Sunday Express, alongside Lee Anderson, as we're urging our constituents to get out safely and support our local high street businesses. 

Update: Future High Streets Fund

This week I sat down with the Minister who's looking after the Future High Streets Fund, and I shared some draft proposals with him to have a look at before the Council submits plans.

Town Centre Survey Results

Pleased to be able to share the results of my recent Town Centre survey, which shows overwhelming support for moving more Council (and other) public services in to the Town Centre, and for the creation of a Council Hub in one of the empty town centre venues.

Regeneration Update

Fantastic progress made for our town centre regeneration project! 

The Mansfield-based ARBA Group has now submitted plans to Mansfield District Council for its showcase Stockwell Gateway project, on the site of the derelict old bus station.
