White Hart Street, Mansfield

Mansfield District Council is seeking a multi-disciplinary design team for a sensitive residential scheme in Mansfield Town Centre. The council seeks an exemplar development that will have a significant impact on Mansfield's town centre.

Invited Housing

Mansfield District Council has acquired a strategically significant site in Mansfield’s town centre. The White Hart Street site sits within a conservation area and contains a listed building and non-designated heritage assets. It forms a key part of the Church Street Quarter in the emerging town centre master plan.

It is the intention of the council to sensitively redevelop the site for residential purposes. The accommodation will be a mix of elderly persons' apartments and family housing. This development supports the vision and priorities of the council’s corporate strategy Making Mansfield: Towards 2030.

Executive Mayor of Mansfield Andy Abrahams said: “We are delighted to be working with RIBA to help find a designer for this flagship redevelopment scheme in Mansfield.

“White Hart Street is an important area close to the town centre which has been crying out to be resurrected into something that combines the old with the new and which will breathe new life into an area which has been run down and largely derelict for many years.

“We want to find an architect who is sensitive about the area’s heritage and excited about designing new housing that will stand the test of time, addressing the challenges of climate change, and providing affordable high quality homes that people of all ages enjoy and feel proud to live in.”
