Environmental Approach

A Sustainable Newton-on-Trent In Tune with the Environment…


Goldfinch Carduelis series 03

The development process will follow these principles:

  1. strong vision, leadership and community engagement;
  2. community ownership of land and long-term stewardship of assets;
  3. a mix of house types and sizes that are affordable to local people;
  4. supporting local employment within the village and within easy commuting distance;
  5. high-quality design, including homes with gardens, combining the very best of modern amenity and country living;
  6. generous green space linked to the natural environment, including well-managed, high-quality gardens, tree-lined streets and open spaces;
  7. opportunities for village residents to grow their own food, including allotments;Senior Man Digging Vegetable Patch On Allotment

  9. integrated and accessible transport systems connecting Newton-on-Trent to surrounding communities.
