The former Mansfield General Hospital, dubbed an eyesore by local residents, is to be demolished and redeveloped after the local council bought it.
The 1.3 hectare site, on West Hill Drive , consists of buildings, dating back to before 1900. The premises have been unoccupied for almost 20 years .
In July 2012 the Council passed a motion to acquire the General Hospital site, and did consider
getting it through a Compulsory Purchase Order (CPO) but has been able to successfully negotiate with the owner to buy the site without the need for a CPO.
