Revamp set for former colliery houses in Pleasley Hill

Pleasley Hill
Residents can comment on outline proposals before a final plan is chosen

Nearly £1m is to be spent on regenerating former colliery houses in part of Nottinghamshire.

Under the scheme, 180 run-down terraced homes on two sites at Pleasley Hill, near Mansfield, will be transformed.

The houses are currently boarded-up and some residents have said they live in fear of anti-social behaviour.

Mansfield District Council is spending £960,000 on the project, run by Meden Valley Making Places. Residents can see outline plans at a meeting on Thursday.

Councillor Heather Henshaw, portfolio holder for housing at the council, said: "It is exciting that we are at a stage where plans for the regeneration of Pleasley Hill are being brought forward."

She urged people to attend the consultation event at Pleasley Landmark Centre on Thursday evening.
