Mansfield District Council held their first Developer Forum on Friday 5 October.  This targeted meeting forms part of the council’s new proactive approach.  Improving the delivery of housing and other schemes across the District.  This event was well-attended by a range of local land owners, developers and agents.

What’s its purpose?

Mansfield District Council has set up the Mansfield Developer Forum in order to create open and transparent channels of communication between developers and officers.  This, in turn, will improve working relationships and improve both the pre-application and planning application processes.

A successful first meeting

The first meeting enjoyed a packed agenda and a wide audience.  Indeed, at this first event, a number of organisations and developers, including Homes England, D2N2 Local Enterprise Partnership and Bowden Land, joined council officers to present and discuss future plans for housing developments in Mansfield.  Hear more about the first meeting in this video.

In fact, there are more useful links on the Mansfield Developer Forum webpage.  This includes the new groups’ terms of agreement, links to presentations made at the inaugural meeting and a feedback opportunity.  Not only that, but there is also another link to the launch video and a further opportunity to sign up to the Growth Delivery Group (GDG).  It is at this GDG where more detailed discussions will be held.  And these will always follow on from the Mansfield Developer Forum meetings.

What’s next?

Developers can also formally request to attend and speak at the newly established Growth Delivery Group (GDG).  Senior officers (including the Chief Executive Officer), Elected Members and key delivery partners together make up the membership of the GDG.  Both the Developer Forum and GDG will take place 3 times a year.  With the GDG always following on from the forum.  The next Developer Forum will meet on 1 February.

If you have any questions at all or would like more information , please contact the Planning Policy teamView information about the launch event.
