Newark & Sherwood Local Development Framework Plan Review - Preferred Approach Town Centre & Retail

ShAP3 - Role of Edwinstowe

3.21 The introduction of a new high-level strategic policy recognising the implications of the proposed allocation of Thoresby Colliery for mixed use development (800 dwellings and 10 hectares of employment land) has been proposed. In terms of main Town Centre and retail issues this seeks to ensure that any new provision as part of the redevelopment does not act to undermine the vitality and viability of existing centres. Accordingly it seeks to restrict the scale and function of new development to that necessary to meet the day-to-day needs of the development.

3.22 The preferred approach to the retail and Town Centre elements of ShAP3 is set out below. Please refer to the Preferred Approach - Settlements & Sites consultation paper for the full policy text. Should you wish to comment on ShAP3, then this should also be done through the Settlements & Sites consultation paper.
