Have your say on regeneration idea for town centre

Posted onPosted on 12th Dec

Plans to transform Ollerton town centre have been revealed as part of an ongoing regeneration project — and residents are being urged to have their say.

The initial ideas will see a new public sector hub with services of the town and Newark and Sherwood district councils complemented by a new state-of-the-art library; boutique cinema; and residential, retail, and hospitability units.

Coun Paul Peacock, leader of the district council, said: “We have been working hard to develop an exciting regeneration project in the town centre that keeps Ollerton residents thoughts, ideas, needs, and wants at the heart of the future of the town.

“The new Town Centre Hub will be vital to the residents of Ollerton, meaning they can access a range of important services on their doorstep and take advantage of new facilities that all ages can enjoy.

“The plans will also reinvigorate the town and allow local businesses to grow and thrive. We are really looking forward to making these plans a reality for the people of Ollerton.

“There will be other opportunities for you to have your say and what you think of the plans as they develop throughout spring and summer before we submit proposals for planning consent.

“More information on this process will be available on our website soon.”

The plans, being developed with Ollerton and Boughton Town Council, Johal (owners of the Forest Centre), and Nottinghamshire County Council, come after it was announced that Sherwood will benefit from a £20m government investment as part of its Levelling Up Fund Round 3.
