TWO long-running housing regeneration schemes in Mansfield reached milestones this week.
The last remaining property at the Brownlow Road and Bould Street project was demolished on Friday, at the same time as the first houses on Chesterfield Road North were flattened as part of the Pleasley Hill Regeneration Scheme.
Brownlow Road became notorious for its high levels of anti-social behaviour, fly-tipping and arson which blighted nearby communities.
Now the final home has been bulldozed, Mansfield District Council will look to appoint a development partner this year and new, modern homes should begin to appear in 2012.
Across town at Pleasley, 38 properties on Chesterfield Road North and Clarence Street are being demolished in the first phase of a new development.
The council is working with Meden Valley Making Places (MVMP) on both schemes.
