The car park has been recently developed to provide 87 spaces including 6 disabled spaces, and has the benefit of security lighting.


Worksop is a market town in the Bassetlaw District of North Nottinghamshire. It has a population of approximately 42,000 persons and a retail catchment of in excess of £110,000. Nearby major towns include Nottingham (30 miles), Sheffield (19 miles), Chesterfield, Lincoln (36 miles) and Doncaster (16 miles), with other smaller market towns including Gainsborough, Mansfield and Retford located close by.

Originally main employment was provided by brewing, mining and textiles which have now been replaced and dominated by serviced industries, manufacturing and distribution. There are major complexes occupied by B&Q and the Head Office of Wilkinsons Hardware Stores. Other major employers include Premier Foods, Greencore and RDS Transport.

In recent years, like many other towns a substantial amount of residential development has been undertaken. There has been very little major out-of-town retailing allowed, but there are a number of major stores within the town centre conurbation, including a number of free-standing stores (retail warehousing).

Competing car parks are located at the Priory Centre to the north and the Queen Street Central Car Park, adjacent to the new Bus Station, immediately to the east of the junction of Bridge Place and Bridge Street. There are a number of other car parks elsewhere but these are of a more secondary nature.

This car park is situated on the southern side of Newcastle Avenue, close to its junction with Bridge Place and Bridge Street, the two prime retailing areas of the town centre. The car park is located directly opposite the Stagecoach Bus Station/Depot and a large office building which has been converted into Serviced Offices.

The surrounding properties are occupied for a mixture of retail and commercial uses including a Brewery opposite.

In summary, the car park is well located in terms of access to the main shopping throughfares of Bridge Street, Bridge Place and the Priory Shopping Centre.

In our opinion the car park is suitable for alternative uses such as retail warehousing or social housing, subject to Planning Consent.
