Newark Area

6.2       The Newark Area covers the eastern side of the District and is dominated by the historic market town of Newark and the Trent Valley. Newark Urban Area (Newark, Balderton and Fernwood) is the principal location for growth identified in the Spatial Strategy. This section provides the detailed policies for implementation of the growth in Newark Urban Area. The Newark Key Diagram illustrates these policies. It is located on the inside back cover of the Core Strategy. In the north of the Newark Area in the Collingham and Rural North Sub Areas respectively; the Principal Villages of Collingham and Sutton-on-Trent act as important focuses for local services. This is particularly important as within these Sub-Areas accessibility is a particular concern. Core Policy 11 Rural Accessibility sets out the strategy for addressing such accessibility issues.
