Newark and Sherwood District Council want to identify what residents love most about Newark Town Centre and to look at how the area can be made a better place for residents, visitors, and businesses. They’re working with various professional teams to understand what people want from their town centre to help shape its future.
Along with Historic England and architects Allies and Morrison, NSDC are holding a number of public consultation workshops and events throughout the next few months for anyone with an interest in the future of Newark who is able to attend and share their views on Newark Town Centre. Running alongside these will be a series of online surveys to gather lots of useful information to help shape plans for the future of Newark.
All of the information gathered over the next few months will be used to create a new Town Centre Masterplan and Design Code, which will help shape plans for new buildings, spaces and activities in Newark Town Centre.
To complete the survey, residents can go to https://arcg.is/1abjvL
The deadline to submit feedback is Friday 3 November. An additional survey will be shared later in the year to help further define the plans.
There will be two face-to-face events where residents are able to give their feedback in person. A Community Workshop is planned for Thursday 26 October between 6pm and 8pm in the Ballroom at Newark Town Hall. Those who would like to attend should register via the Eventbrite page here: https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/731096287677?aff=oddtdtcreator
For those unable to take the online survey or make the Community Workshop, there will be a market stall in Newark Market Place on Friday 27 October between 10am and 3pm where residents will be given an opportunity to feedback.
