ONLY the High Court now has the power to stand in the way of one of Mansfield’s biggest-ever developments after the Government said it would not intervene.
The Lindhurst project cleared another big hurdle this week when the secretary of state ruled the scheme did not qualify for a ‘call in’ for reconsideration.
Campaigners opposed to the massive scheme said their only option remaining is a possible judicial review.
Organisers will now consider whether to launch an appeal for cash to fund legal advice.
Developers said they can now make further progress on planning for the project, which will transform 170 hectares of land south of Mansfield into homes and businesses.
The development will involve around 1,700 new homes south of Mansfield, off the A617 MARR route between Rainworth and the A60.
Developers the Lindhurst Group also say its commercial element will bring up to 4,000 jobs to the area and help drive regeneration.
