Economy


Our aims

To ensure that the development attracts inward investment, creates jobs, and complements and enhances existing economic activity in the local area and the surrounding economy

To ensure that the development contributes to the local area by enhancing skills and training opportunities

Local needs and priorities (taken from consultations)

  • Provide a base for new and existing businesses within the village
  • Provide work from home options and the use of flexible office space
  • Potential for space to be used as a showroom for local businesses
  • Create local opportunities to increase skills and education

Progress

September 2015: We have consulted with local businesses during phone conversations and invitations to the workshops.

We are safeguarding the existing jobs which relate to the farm enterprise on the current site and will relocate this part of the business to another site within the area.

We are currently investigating best options to provide training, business opportunities and increased skills for local people and businesses through continued evaluations of the proposal and also discussions with local training providers and employment/economic development agencies.

Our specialist team includes local businesses, who we would like to thank for their continued involvement, most notably:

  • Influence, Newark: landscape architects
  • Pre-Construct Archaeological Services Ltd, Saxilby: archaeological surveys and evaluation
  • Pre-Construct Archaeological Services Ltd, Saxilby and Newton on Trent: geophysical surveys
  • SGA Architects, Collingham: architectural design and master plan
  • Viridis Building Services, Newark: sustainable homes and building services

Next steps

Continue to evaluate the economic benefits and opportunities of the evolving proposals.
