Purple Flag

Our town has a Purple Flag status

Mansfield was awarded Purple Flag status in June 2016.

The Purple Flag award is given to towns that meet strict criteria and deliver action plans to make continuous improvements to their evening economy.

In working to gain the standard, businesses operating in the night time economy worked as part of the Purple Flag steering group. they have continued to work with partners such as the police and council to offer an even better night out for visitors to the town and to strengthen Mansfield’s reputation as somewhere that everyone can enjoy a night out.
Market testing shows that stakeholders believe a Purple Flag can bring the following benefits:
- A raised profile and an improved public image
- Wider patronage
- Increased expenditure
- Lower crime and anti-social behaviour
- A more successful mixed-use economy
Purple Flag is managed by the Association of Town Centre Management (ATCM) in partnership with central and local government, the police, professional groups, business, industry and consumers.

What has been achieved?

Since achieving Purple Flag status positive results achieved include:

Increased footfall in the town
Creation of a multi-agency events group to coordinate activities in the town
Establishment of Doorwatch, to provide door supervisors with training, equipment and a chance to share information with police and CCTV
Increased inward investment, underlining the raised positive profile
