Mansfield has an over abundance of empty commercial properties which could be re-purposed into housing. The spreading out of the town has been poorly thought out causing the market to fail and for many town centre stores to close down. If these empty buildings became residential and the centre became more experience focused rather than retail it could really turn the town around. A cultural town centre rather than retail one focusing on Mansfields wealth of historical significance and location with the Market place becoming a sort of venue in itself with various events throughout the year to attract tourism.
