Newark & Sherwood Plan Review - Publication Amended Core Strategy


6.112   The Infrastructure Delivery Plan (IDP) identifies a range of infrastructure requirements to support the development of the site.

  • Green Infrastructure – as mentioned in the character, setting and heritage above the strategic framework must be prepared to set out the landscape and green infrastructure approaches to be used on site. This will include the provision of SANG compliant open space alongside the more traditional play areas for children and young people. Increased provision of sports pitches will also be required as part of this development.
  • Education – the provision of a 1 form entry primary school on site.
  • Healthcare – The requirement to provide for additional healthcare will either be on site or a contribution to expanding the existing Major Oak Health Centre within Edwinstowe.
  • Highways Infrastructure – detailed transport impacts will need to be considered as part of a Transport Assessment to accompany any application, but a substantial upgrade will need to be made to the junction of the A614, A616 and the A6075 - Ollerton Roundabout.
