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.

Yorke Drive Residents Consultative Panel
As part of the household survey we asked residents if they would like to be involved in a Consultative Panel, to work with the architects and other members of the Yorke Drive team. 33 residents said they would be keen to get involved, with a further 38 residents indicating that they would like to learn more about what being part of the panel will involve.
A workshop for residents interested in the Consultative Panel will be held on Tuesday 27th March, from 12 noon until 2.45pm, at the Bridge Community Centre.
Those attending will receive a presentation on the ‘master-planning’ process for the proposed improvement work, and hear about the next steps. Residents will also have the opportunity to ask questions.
The role of the Panel will be explained, together with examples of the type of work the Panel can be involved with, and any training and support needed by residents to enable them to fully participate.
If you are interested in joining the panel, but cannot make the first workshop, please contact Harriet Partington on 01636 655462, or email harriet.partington@email@example.com We are planning a further workshop for those residents not able to make the 27th March session.
