The District Council successfully received the allocation of £3.28 million from the government's UK Shared Prosperity Fund to support communities and town centres, enhance local skills, improve infrastructure and help accelerate economic growth across the district.
Councillor David Lloyd, Leader of Newark and Sherwood District Council, said: "Earlier this month, we secured our allocation of £3.28 million, which we can now give to projects and programmes delivered by local organisations that will significantly benefit our residents and businesses. It is a fantastic opportunity for our local community and a win-win situation!
