Mansfield District Council is seeking development partners to build two key retail jobs worth a total of £70 million.
The Stockwell Gate North and old indoor market regeneration schemes are designed to provide suitable sites for major retailers in the town centre. Its north site is approximately 4.25 ha and currently comprises retail units and a bus station which is to be relocated as part of a separate project.
The preferred developer will be expected to integrate a development into the town centre and specific planning guidance has been produced.
The former indoor market site is approximately 576 sq m and is currently used as a temporary car park.
Subject to planning it would be suitable for a variety of commercial uses. The council is willing to enter discussions with developers to increase the scope of either project.
Between four and six operators will be invited to tender.
Bids must be sent by 28 April 2011.
