Work starts on major development

WORK has started on a scheme that promises up to 4,000 new jobs for Mansfield.

The Lindhurst project, over 480 acres close to the MARR route, will include 1,700 new homes, a new primary school and health centre, hi-tech research and development facilities, offices and industrial accommodation, and leisure and retail development.

The scheme is divided into four separate sites — Vision Innovation Park, George V Commercial Park, Adams Park and Regent Park.

Vision Innovation Park, close to the Vision West Nottinghamshire College campus, will offer fully serviced plots, while the Commercial Park will provide industrial and office accommodation.

The 40-acre Adams Park will see retail and leisure including a food store , a bar and restaurants, a family pub, a hotel and a new school and nursery. Regent Park will provide up to 60 acres of residential development land.

Richard Bowden, project representative for The Lindhurst Group (Nottinghamshire County Council, Lindhurst Jersey Ltd and Westerman Homes), developers of the scheme, said: “We want to build a neighbourhood where people want to live and work, and create something that the wider north Nottinghamshire community is proud of.”

FHP is marketing the scheme on behalf of the Lindhurst Group. David Hargreaves, director at the firm said: “Berry Hill Mansfield will provide a true mixed use development from industrial and office use, through to retail and leisure, to housing.

“Our clients are putting the infrastructure into the site and are prepared to sell land to owner occupiers or developers, or to provide costs to build out on a design and build basis, facilities that meet operators’ requirements.

“We are already in discussion with a number of house builders who are keen to develop in this area on the Nottingham / Mansfield border.”

Tim Gilbertson, who will be responsible for the industrial and office land, added: “This is a well located site with excellent communications that provides both developers and owner occupiers with an opportunity to secure bespoke accommodation to meet their requirements.

“This will be a 10-15 year project and will build on the excellent reputation that the Berry Hill area already has, while connecting into the established industrial and office area of Southwell Road West.”

The launch was also attended by representatives from the Homes and Communities Agency (HCA), which is supporting the project.
