The revised Hucknall Town Centre Masterplan will replace the Masterplan for Hucknall undertaken by Urbed for the Council in 2009. The updated Masterplan aims to provide a high-level framework for future investment and development which maximises the opportunities for Hucknall in reference to culture, transport and tourism and capitalises on its existing assets. In particular it:

  • Provides a consensus and common understanding of Hucknall Town Centre as a place – its character and identity.
  • Establishes a clear vision for Hucknall town centre, to guide its development and improvements.
  • Provides clear design principles for subsequent new development or projects, with an emphasis on sustainability.
  • Identifies sites and buildings where redevelopment and improvements will be encouraged.
  • Aims to improve links to and within the town centre for pedestrians, cyclists, and public transport users.
  • Provides an evidence base for the Council’s emerging Local Plan.

The Masterplan is not inflexible or prescriptive, and it is not intended to provide detailed projects or design solutions. It does not provide a commitment by the Council to fund but provides a framework for investment, where funding can be sought to take the Masterplan forward.

Where can I view the Masterplan?
