Council Leader to use Facebook Live to discuss Newark town centre funding

NSDC leader Cllr David Lloyd will be on Facebook Live from 12.30pm this Friday, residents can either email or ask questions through the council’s Facebook page.

Newark and Sherwood District Council leader Councillor David Lloyd will be on Facebook Live this Friday to discuss a £25 million town fund and other issues.

Detailed proposals are being drawn up with the local community, businesses and local leaders, to help transform the town’s economic growth prospects with a focus on improved transport, heritage, skills and culture.

The ambition is to ‘re-imagine’ the town, maximise the positives of its independent shops, tourist offer and assets and its historic centre and architecture.

Proposals will aim to address issues of retail decline, increasing footfall in the town centre, improving skills and incomes and providing new residential and family offers to the town.

Councillor Lloyd said: “We are working on a regeneration programme which will match our vision and ambition to revamp and breathe new life into Newark town centre.

“We are looking forward to shaping our proposals with residents, businesses, and partners in line with the central government’s new Towns  Fund and other funding packages, to re-imagine the town’s future development and this Facebook Live streaming will look at how we will aim to to do this.”

Newark was chosen as one of 100 places across the UK to have been invited to develop proposals for the Towns Fund initiative.

This is the first streaming of four Facebook Live events which have been scheduled for the coming months, addressing issues that have been raised through the council's Residents' Survey.

You can ask questions in advance and throughout the programme either via the council's Facebook page or email pr@nsdc.info . 

The Facebook Live will be available at https://www.facebook.com/NSDCouncil/ from 12.30pm - 1.30pm this Friday, 31st January.
