The Berry Hill development, Mansfield
The Berry Hill development, also known as the Lindhurst development, is a £250 million 480-acre site being built in Mansfield, to the south of the existing Berry Hill community.
The development for north Nottinghamshire will act as an urban extension to Berry Hill, providing new homes and jobs for the area.
- It is being built on land part-owned by Nottinghamshire County Council.
- It will feature up to 1,700 new homes, which include plans for 170 affordable homes.
- Shops, a health centre, a new primary school, a nursery, care homes, offices, a community park and other green spaces are also planned, as well as a hotel, filling station and roadside catering.
- It will provide new community and commercial space which will be worth £100million a year to the local economy.
- It is expected to generate up to 4,000 new jobs. It will include 31,000 square metres of commercial space and almost 190,000 square metres of work floor space.
Phases of the development
Construction of the first 530 houses for this phase began in 2017 and is expected to be complete by the end of 2022.
More than 400 homes, built by Avant, Barratt, Bellway and David Wilson Homes have now been occupied.
A new spine road, to serve the development and surrounding area, has been funded by a £3 million grant from the D2N2 Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP). Work on the spine road began in June 2021.
This phase will allow almost 500 new houses to be built by housing developer Bellway, including 170 affordable homes. It will also provide access to and services for the planned local centre, which is expected to include a small supermarket, a health centre, a care home and a parade of shops, and a new primary school, as well as 2.7 hectares of employment land.
The one-kilometre spine road will go through the centre of the site, linking it to the Adamsway roundabout on the A6117. When complete, the new community will double in size over the following 5 - 6 years.
The road building work is being carried out by Balfour Beatty and overseen by the Arc Partnership. The spine road is now complete: Housing development in Mansfield takes big step forward with completion of new spine road.
Work on a hotel, roadside facilities, and more than 700 homes is due to begin by the end of 2022. Almost 14 hectares of employment land will be brought to the market at the same time.
