100-bed hotel to form part of £12m regeneration project in Mansfield

Plans for a £12m regeneration project close to Mansfield town centre has been formally submitted to Mansfield District Council.

The proposals, which have been submitted by Mansfield-based ARBA Group, includes a new 100-bedroom hotel which spans across six storeys, alongside three new standalone restaurants and a 52-space car park.

The plans also include direct pedestrian access to the existing Walkden Street car park and pedestrian links to the Four Seasons Shopping Centre.

It is hoped that planning permission for the scheme will be approved by August, with work then able to start in Spring 2021.

Chris Calvert, executive director with Pegasus Group, said: “We were pleased to provide a trio of services in relation to the preparation, submission, monitoring and management of the application comprising the erection of a 100-bed hotel and ancillary restaurant and three restaurants with ancillary retail and takeaway facilities, associated vehicular access, parking and servicing areas, public realm and landscaping.

“The development is proposed on a brownfield site, located in Mansfield town centre which was identified as a regeneration site and allocated for retail and leisure uses within the emerging Mansfield District Local Plan 2013 – 2033.”

He added: “The proposed development would secure substantial net gains across the three dimensions to sustainable development and the three overarching objectives of the planning system.”
