£7.6m Nottinghamshire town centres’ programme to create over 600 jobs

Funding worth £7.6million to help reinvigorate Nottinghamshire town and local centres has been agreed, via the D2N2 Local Enterprise Partnership.

Nottinghamshire County Council’s £20million ‘Unlocking Growth in N2 Town Centres’ Programme covers seven major projects, designed to improve and instil growth in the county’s town centres.

The seven individual projects initially seeking funding via the Programme are as follows:

  • Kirkby-in-Ashfield leisure centre and town centre redevelopment, in the Ashfield District Council area
  • Re-invigorating Upper Bridge Street, Worksop, scheme (Bassetlaw District Council)
  • Beeston Square Phase 2 redevelopment (Broxtowe Borough Council)
  • Arnold Market/Arnold town centre scheme (Gedling Borough Council)
  • Carlton Square (Gedling Borough Council)
  • Mansfield Old Town Hall redevelopment (Mansfield District Council)
  • Newark Buttermarket redevelopment (Newark & Sherwood District Council)

These improvements are set to attract more visitors and shoppers as well as create new jobs.

Nottinghamshire County Council, responsible for the programme, estimates that in total the seven projects listed could create around 612 jobs, with more to come should additional projects come forward.

Matthew Wheatley, Chief Executive of the D2N2 Local Enterprise Partnership, said: “Thriving town and local centres are vital for wider economic growth; providing people with nearby job opportunities, leisure activities, and easily accessible retail and business services which reduce their need to travel further afield.

“D2N2 understands this, which is why we are making a major and long-term investment in Nottinghamshire centres, through this County Council-led programme.”

Councillor Kay Cutts, Leader of Nottinghamshire County Council, said: “Improving our town centres will play a vital role in helping us to fulfil our ambition of making Nottinghamshire a great place to live, work and visit.

“I am delighted that the County Council and its partners have secured the go-ahead for this vital programme, bringing much-needed investment to a number of our centres.

“We will be working closely with our partners in the respective areas to ensure that good quality projects come forward, responsive to the changing needs and circumstances within each of the town centres.”
