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.

I need your views on the Town Centre!

I'm certain that moving the Council in to the town centre and filling some of the vacant shops with Council and Community services would bring more people in to town. Do you agree? 

Talking Towns

Today my meetings and discussions have mainly focused on towns, with a particular focus on our Town Deal and potential investment in regeneration across Mansfield and Warsop. 

Meeting with the Mayor and CEO at MDC

A positive meeting with the Mayor and CEO here at MDC where we spoke at length about what needs to happen with our £25m Town Deal funding, and hopefully Future High Streets cash too later this year.
