It’s your Mansfield, your future – Mansfield District Local Plan to 2033

January 13, 2016 11:15 am

 Mansfield District Council

Consultation on the Draft Mansfield District Local Plan started Monday 11 January 2016.

For six weeks, the council will be asking people who live and work in Mansfield to give their opinion and feedback on how the district will develop over the next 17 years.

The Local Plan Consultation Draft is the penultimate stage in mapping out what may be developed in and around the Mansfield area.

The draft contains a vision and development strategy that will influence the distribution and allocation of residential developments, employment land, retail development in the town centre and the protection of green and open spaces.

This strategy will determine policies for planning applications and decision making.

The Local Plan is key to the future of the district; it impacts on all communities and businesses, which is why the council is encouraging as many people as possible to get involved in the consultation process.

There are many events taking place across the district, where you can meet planning officers and local councillors to discuss the plan for your community. You will be able to ask questions and find out what development will be taking place in and around your neighbourhood.

Portfolio Holder for Regeneration, Cllr Dave Saunders said: “Now is the time for local to people to find out more about how their community will change over the coming years. The consultation draft looks at important issues such as transport, infrastructure and the provision of local services such as schools and medical centres.”
