Former Mansfield nightclub to be turned into leisure and learning hub

The site of a former Mansfield town centre nightclub is set to get a new lease of life as a multi-use leisure hub.

The derelict site of the former Limited Editions nightclub, off West Gate and Quaker Way, has been disused for more than a decade.

However, planning permission has now been granted to convert it into an “education and training centre” on the first floor and a leisure facility on the ground firm.

In its application to Mansfield District Council, the local planning authority, letting firm Innes England said: “The proposed use revolves around a children’s activity and day centre, providing various sports-related activities including gymnastics and martial arts.

“The club would be run by a company involved in working with schools and children with behavioural issues and operate outside of school hours and term times.”

It is believed that the old nightclub site, which faces onto Quaker Way next to the exit to Four Seasons car park, will need work completed to limit noise generated by the leisure facility.

The application, which has now been given conditional approval, says: “The existing site has the potential to cause significant noise and disturbance at night, because the building does not look particularly sound insulated.

“The proposed use is likely to take place between the hours of 3pm and 9-10pm.

“While the children will make some noise inside the building, it is not likely to result in similar noise disturbances that can result from a nightclub and so this would be an improvement on its previous use.”

The old Limited Editions nightclub, alongside outdoor section The Yard, was popular in the 1990s.

It later became Ten before the building closed in the early Noughties.
