All Change at the Old Bus Station

May 7, 2013 12:28 pm

The old bus station site in Mansfield is set to become a temporary car park while discussions continue on the long-term plans for the site.

The new car park on Stockwell Gate will provide 113 standard car parking spaces and 11 disabled spaces. These will replace those spaces previously provided by Station Road car park, now the site of the new bus station.  For more information on the new bus station, visit the Major Developments section.

In order to make way for the car park, the public toilets at the old bus station have now closed and will be demolished along with the vacant restaurant and cafe at 4 Walkden Street. The public toilets were deemed to be outdated, under-utilised and expensive to maintain.  Work on the site is expected to take up to three months to complete and it is hoped that the car park will open in summer 2013.

Councillor Kate Allsop, Portfolio Holder for Economic Regeneration at Mansfield District Council, said: “We recognise that the old bus station site is crucial to the development and regeneration of the Town Centre as it provides an excellent location for the larger retail outlets that are needed to ensure Mansfield remains the sub-regional shopping and leisure destination of choice.

“While we seek to find a suitable partner to develop this location, we will be building a temporary car park on the site. This will enhance access to the town centre and will encourage more people to visit the area.”
