ONLINE POLL: Councils join forces

MANSFIELD and Ashfield’s district councils announced last week they have joined forces to develop a plan for the area’s economic growth.

The two authorities have launched a consultation on ‘Ambition; a plan for growth’ to fine-tune strategies to build businesses and jobs.

The aim is to use the resources of both councils to boost a ‘Sherwood Growth Zone’ which spreads from junctions 27 and 28 of the M1 across Ashfield and Mansfield to Rainworth.
