Have your say in Hucknall's Future Hucknall Masterplan consulation 25 April to 24 May 2022

Council calls on residents to have their say on the development of Hucknall

Ashfield District Council has today opened its Hucknall Town Centre Masterplan consultation, giving Hucknall residents an opportunity to have their say on how the places in Hucknall town centre where they live, work, learn and visit should develop over the next few years.

The Hucknall Town Centre Masterplan sets out the aspirations for the future development of the town centre. The purpose of the masterplan is to deliver innovative change to Hucknall Town Centre, and it will help towards supporting sustainable growth, creating new public realms, revitalising existing buildings and services, and improving the streets for pedestrians. The plan also seeks to capitalise on future aspirations in relation to culture, transport, and urban regeneration.

Cllr John Wilmott, Councillor for Hucknall North said:

“The masterplan will play a critical role in the future of Hucknall Town centre. We want to raise the profile of the town both locally and regionally, for it to realise it’s potential as a place of great heritage and build on the significant transformation the town centre has already undergone in recent years.”

Full details of the Hucknall Town Centre consultation can be found on the ADC website and social media pages.

Copies of the draft Hucknall Town Centre Masterplan can be viewed at Sutton, Kirkby, Huthwaite, Hucknall, Skegby and Selston libraries as well as the Council Offices on Urban Road, Kirkby-in-Ashfield.

Cllr Wilmott continued

“Through funding opportunities, including the Levelling Up Fund we are investing in making Hucknall town centre a place where residents can enjoy their free time, bringing more opportunities for businesses, investment and enhancing Hucknall’s visitor offer.
“Hucknall has a lot going for it already with its pedestrianised shopping area, transport links and rich cultural history. I encourage all residents to read and have their say on the draft masterplan so that together we can help transform the town centre into the attractive, vibrant, accessible place to live, learn, visit, work and invest.”

The consultation period will run from Monday 25 April to 5.00pm on 24th May 2022.
