Work begins on derelict Ma Hubbards

WORK has begun to transform the eyesore former Ma Hubbards site in Mansfield Woodhouse into residential homes this week.

The derelict former pub and restaurant is set to be bulldozed and replaced with 10 new homes off Birding Street.

A parade of three retail units, including a Tesco One Stop shop, will also be built by Regent Street Developments after both proposals were given the green light by Mansfield District Council’s Planning Committee in December.

The development was strongly opposed by residents as it is seen as a threat to local businesses and could cause traffic problems on the A60.
