New homes for Pleasley Hill

Work to create 151 family homes and transform derelict land at Pleasley Hill, Mansfield, is set to get underway.

Mansfield District Council has signed a development contract agreement with Westbury Partnerships (a division of Persimmon Homes) for the sale of the land on Chesterfield Road North.

The multi-million pound redevelopment will create a new gateway into the town, transform the landscape and breathe new life into the area, where 160 former colliery worker homes that were deemed sub-standard have been demolished. Trees and shrubs will be planted

The Homes and Communities Agency (HCA) has invested nearly £1m to support the council demolishing the properties and clearing the land to accelerate the development.

Westbury Partnerships is finalising the planning application for 151 new homes for sale and for rent along with two small business units.

A sales office and show home are expected to be built by the end of May, 2015 with the first properties completed by the end of July, 2015.

Coun Derek Evans, portfolio holder for housing strategy and regeneration, said: “The Pleasley Hill regeneration scheme will bring much-needed modern family homes to the area and will transform this gateway into Mansfield so it is a place we can all be proud of.”

Simon Mcdonald, commercial and technical director of Westbury Partnerships, said: “We are looking forward to playing our part in the regeneration of this significant development for Mansfield, which will provide the area with much-needed new housing.”
