New affordable rental homes to be built in Mansfield

Work will start later this year on a new homes development consisting of 44 houses for affordable rent in Mansfield, after planning officials at Mansfield District Council gave the scheme the green light.

The scheme will be developed by York-based Urban Group (York) Ltd for social housing provider, PA Housing, and the detailed plans for the homes, including the floorplans and elevations, have been designed by Leeds-based Brewster Bye Architects.

The vacant site sits within the urban boundary of the Mansfield District Council District Local Plan and is accessed from Sherwood Avenue, close to Sherwood Oaks Business Park, which is less than three miles southeast of Mansfield Town Centre.

The scheme forms part of The Berry Hill development, which will include up to 1,700 new homes. It will also neighbour a 169-home development off Old Newark Road and Bellamy Road, which secured planning permission last year.

Nick Gould, Managing Director of Urban Developments (York) Ltd, said: “This development will offer a superb range of high quality, two, three and four bedroom homes with gardens and parking.

“It’s in a popular area, that is currently benefitting from a wide range of residential and commercial development, as part of The Berry Hill development, and it’s exciting to be contributing to this major regeneration scheme, alongside national housebuilders and PLCs close to the recently opened Aldi supermarket as well as a new pub, coffee shop and food outlets. It’s also within walking distance of several schools and benefits from good transport links, which will make it a popular place to live.”

Mark Henderson, from Brewster Bye Architects, said: “These homes will appeal to a wide range of residents and families who want a contemporary new home, for an affordable price, in a sought-after area.

“Every house has been carefully designed to offer spacious, light and well-proportioned living spaces and the whole development has the potential to become a vibrant and sustainable community with an attractive street scene and distinctive character.

“This is enhanced by retaining existing landscape features around the edge of the site, as well as a central hedgerow, which runs right through the middle of the development. All this combines to offer privacy and further improves the attractive street scene that the development will enjoy.”
