Permission granted for new homes at Mansfield quarry site

Planning permission for 73 new homes, including bungalows and apartments for over 55s, at the former Sandhurst Quarry site in Mansfield has been secured.

The scheme, approved by Mansfield District Council, includes public and private amenity space and access, internal road network and parking spaces and infrastructure.

Pegasus Group, on behalf of Dukeries Homes, secured permission for the development at the brownfield site comprising a former sand quarry which is located 1.5km south of the town centre.

The development comprises 73 homes of varying size and type, including semi-detached and detached properties, as well as apartments offering living space over 55s, all of a bespoke design.

Chris Calvert, executive director of Pegasus Group, who worked on the scheme with planner Ben Gibson, said: “The site was allocated for housing within the new local plan, and the team worked together to overcome key issues relating to highways and also secured a net gain in biodiversity.

“The new development will be flexible enough to respond to future changes in use, lifestyle and demography. This means designing for resource efficiency, creating flexibility in the use of property, public spaces and service infrastructure and introducing new approaches to transportation, traffic management and parking.

“The development will also be able to accommodate changes of use and circumstances through changing social, technological and economic conditions.”
