Mansfield Town FC have had plans approved to transform their stadium by adding a multi-million pound hotel, restaurant and club shop.

The Hampton by Hilton hotel will be built at the Ian Greave stand of the One Call Stadium, in Quarry Lane, Mansfield.

The development is set to create at least 25 new jobs, 17 full-time and eight part-time.

Plans were first submitted in March 2018 after the club initially had an application turned down to build a 120-bedroom hotel at Stockwell Gate North in October 2017.

The club will also build a new leisure suite, ticketing area and food and beverage areas.

In a letter to Mansfield FC's chairman, John Radford, Sarah Green, development director for UK and Ireland at Hilton, said the hotel "represents the best option and location for a quality hotel to serve Mansfield."

The letter added: "We are very confident in the success that a development linked with the stadium will bring.

A letter signed by John Radford, claimed that a Hilton hotel would "significantly increase the profile" of Mansfield.

It said: "We are all committed to the development of Mansfield Town and enhancing the contribution it makes to the community in terms of our performances on the pitch.

"This proposed development will help us increase our contribution to the economy, to local businesses and raise the profile of the town."

The plans were approved and welcomed by Mansfield District Council on Wednesday, July 4, 2018.

Councillor Dave Saunders, Portfoilio Holder for Regeneration and Growth at Mansfield District Council, said: "We welcome this plan as it will bring a much-needed new hotel to the town as well new jobs, something which we hope will complement other plans in the pipeline for a similar-sized hotel at the old bus station site in Mansfield which the council is progressing at the moment.”

Mansfield Town declined to comment at this stage.

The hotel will be operated as a franchise after the plans were passed by Mansfield District Council. It will cost an estimated £10 million pounds to build. Carolyn Radford, Stags chief executive, previously speaking about the hotel said: “Everybody’s enthusiastic about this project. “We have a fantastic brand, the best builders, architects and constructors we can find. “It will be of real quality. It will be a unique destination for Mansfield.” The hotel will feature a gym, bar and restaurant, as well as two large areas which may be used for retail purposes in the hotel. Over 25 jobs will be created once the hotel is built, which club bosses are hoping will be in 2020. The club has said it sees “potential” for the number of jobs to increase for special events and if the hotel breaks into the conference market. However, several conditions need to be met by the club before the hotel can be built, including that work will need to start at the hotel over the next year.

One condition is that the colour of the cladding to the hotel will have to be agreed to by the council. The council have also stated that there will need to be further plans into traffic management around and in the car park of the stadiums ground.
