Resident Consultation Programme for all residents and stakeholders kicks off on 30th May with a Workshop, 6pm-8.30pm, at the Bridge Community Centre.
Yorke Drive Focus
The Bridge Ward Neighbourhood Study, carried out in 2012, looked at the relationship between Yorke Drive estate and the rest of Bridge Ward, and explored how to regenerate this area. The study made some proposals, but due to lack of funds this was not taken forward.
In 2017, Newark and Sherwood District Council secured Government funding to look again at options for the regeneration of the Yorke Drive estate, to make it a safer and a better place to live. This includes considering possible options for the development of additional housing for rent and sale on part of the Lincoln Road Playing Fields, and the provision of improved sports and recreational facilities.
We are carrying out consultation and master-planning looking at all the options and giving residents and stakeholders the opportunity to feed in their views of the priorities for improving the area. Everyone who lives, works or is involved in some way with the Yorke Drive estate will have the opportunity to get involved
By summer 2018, we will seek to draw up firm proposals to take the project forward. However, no decisions have yet been taken on any of this.
The information on this website is aimed at informing interested parties of the proposals, and how you can get involved in influencing them.
We have also set up social media where you can be kept informed.
