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

Ra/MU/1 'Rainworth - Mixed Use Site 1'

4.4 As set out in the Preferred Approach - Settlements & Sites paper the mixed use allocation Ra/MU/1 is proposed for deallocation. Rainworth is proposed to be redefined as a 'Local Centre', and the TC&RS has forecast limited comparison and convenience capacity over the plan period which is able to be met through the extension of existing stores, reuse of existing buildings or infill development - subject to market demand. Accordingly the site is no long required for retail development, though remains within the settlement boundary and so could be developed were the site to become available.

Should you wish to comment on the preferred approach to Ra/MU/1 this should be done through the Preferred Approach - Settlements and Sites consultation paper.
