New car park opens in Mansfield town centre

November 12, 2013 3:13 pm


A new temporary car park, located on the site of the former Mansfield bus station, will open from tomorrow (Wednesday 13 November), ready for the Christmas shopping season.

The new Stockwell Gate North car park has 109 parking spaces, with an additional 11 disabled parking bays and 12 spaces for motorbikes.  Solar powered ticket machines have also been installed.  Prices for parking are £1 per hour, with a maximum of four hours stay between 8am and 4pm. The car park will be open 24 hours a day, seven days a week.  The car park replaces the 85 spaces previously provided by Station Road car park, which is now the site of the new bus station.   The taxi rank has been retained within the car park and is operating as normal.

Cllr 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 have created a temporary car park on the site. This will enhance access to the town centre and will encourage more people to visit the area.”
