Work on Shirebrook Memorial Gardens set to start

The first phase of Bolsover District Council’s Shirebrook Market Place: REimagined project will start on site on Monday 1 July 2024.

The first phase of Bolsover District Council’s Shirebrook Market Place: REimagined project will start on site on Monday 1 July 2024The project will see the creation of new, attractive memorial gardens to complement the magnificent mining memorial that was unveiled in May 2023.


Not only will the memorial gardens improve the design quality of the town centre, they are intended to provide a contemplative space for people visiting the memorial and also a pleasant spot for workers and shoppers to take their lunch.


Based on this initial investment, the Council has been successful in securing funding for the project from both the Valencia Communities Fund via the Landfill Communities Fund and through the Bolsover Community Woodlands project.


This funding has enabled the authority to commission Jamieson Contracting to carry out the resurfacing and tree works involved in creating the Memorial Gardens and the work is scheduled to be completed by September 2024.


Bolsover District Council have also engaged with Lathams Architects whose plan includes detailed design work to create the attractive memorial gardens that will flank the memorial.


Bolsover District Council Leader, Councillor Steve Fritchley said, “High streets are changing, and we must adapt to make sure that what is in our town centres represents what people need and expect.


“The plans we have will significantly improve the market place, make better use of the space and provide a central area that people will want to visit, where they can relax and have a cuppa or a bite to eat and watch the world go by, whilst also providing more footfall for our businesses.”


Beyond this initial phase, the Council has secured additional funding for the Shirebrook Market Place: REimagined project and work is underway to establish how this funding can be used to deliver the rest of the public realm improvements
