I've got a question...
Below, we’ve tried to anticipate some of the questions you might have about Berry Hill, but if you’ve got any more, please get in touch and we’ll be happy to answer them.
What is happening at Berry Hill?
Berry Hill is a mixed-use development scheme which will deliver an urban extension to Southern Mansfield. It comprises a number of different elements from leisure and retail to office space as well as creating up to 1,700 new homes, a new primary school, children’s nursery and health and care facilities.
What are the benefits to this development?
This is an important scheme for Mansfield, which will bring with it a number of benefits. Not only will it deliver up to 1,700 much-needed new homes for the area but it will also create an estimated 4,000 jobs and a significant boost to the local economy.
Will there be jobs for local people?
As well as creating an estimated 4,000 jobs, we will also be working with the likes of Vision West Notts College to provide opportunities for training throughout the course of the development. The Berry Hill development is a significant scheme for Mansfield and creating opportunities for local people is really important to us.
Who will the developers be?
The first phase of the development is now underway and will see around 500 new homes built. The housebuilders for the first phase are: Barratt Homes, David Wilson Homes and Avant Homes.
When do you expect house building to commence on site?
We expect to see housebuilders conducting works on site later this year.
Why are there roadworks on Adams Way?
Works are currently underway to create a brand new roundabout on Adamsway, which will give access to the new spine road we are creating as part of the development. This first phase is expected to last until Winter 2017. We are working with the council to limit how construction impacts on day-to-day travel.
There have been problems with dust in the first few weeks. What are you doing about it?
We have experienced an extremely dry Spring this year which, twinned with windy conditions, has meant that the essential ground levelling and compacting works taking place on site at the moment are causing high levels of dust. Whereas during working hours the contractors are using a water bowser to damp the site and reduce dust, no works are permitted to take place on site during evenings and weekends. The Lindhurst Group is working closely with the contractors to seek appropriate solutions to limit the issues being encountered by local residents relating to dust from the site.
I live nearby and have had issues with vibrations as a result of construction works. What are you doing about it?
Our contractor has undertaken independent monitoring of the levels of vibration associated with construction works on site to ensure that they comply with industry standards. The results are currently being processed. If you have specific queries or concerns, please get in touch.
