Work starts on public realm project

Work has started on the transformation of the historic town centre of Bolsover, with NM (North Midland) Construction Plc awarded the contract to build a new ‘public realm.’

The project will be complete by November, ready for the commemorative anniversary of WW1 and the annual Bolsover Christmas Lantern Parade.

“We’re delighted to announce NM Construction as the successful applicant following a competitive tender process, and we’re now looking forward to seeing the transformation take place,” said Bolsover District Council’s Cabinet Member for Regeneration, Councillor Alan Tomlinson.

“The new public realm will show off what the town has to offer, while highlighting our rich heritage, helping residents and businesses benefit from the tourist pull of Bolsover Castle,” he said.

“We believe NM Construction has the experience and capability to help us achieve this, and we’re pleased to have them on board.”

The £398K of improvements will include natural stone planters, a lighting scheme, stone bollards around the cenotaph, stone and oak benching, and electric points to power a significant programme of events planned for Bolsover in 2014 and beyond.

Six companies submitted a tender and points were awarded for price, quality, suitable materials and added value.

The public realm is funded by European funding, plus match funding from High Street Innovation Funding, Bolsover District Council and Old Bolsover Town Council.

A ‘town team’ which includes representatives from Bolsover District Council, Old Bolsover Town Council, stakeholders and businesses, is leading the project.
