For those residents not already aware, the Section 106 Agreement relating to proposed Phase II development on the former RAF Newton site was signed in September 2018. This is a legally binding Agreement, negotiated between the Developer and Local Planning Authority, outlining planning obligations (including local amenities) for Phase II of the development.
Most will also know that Phase II has been in the planning for a long time, hence it has been a standing topic for discussion at our Newton Parish Council meetings. For those parishioners unable to attend meetings and listen to proceedings, the Minutes are posted on the NPC website at www.newton-pc-notts.co.uk. An automated link to these Minutes will also soon appear here on our recently launched Facebook page, encouraging parishioners to be well-informed about the Council’s activities, including what is happening and/or planned for our community.
Demolition of the former RAF buildings by the Developer’s appointed Contractors is the next crucial step towards Phase II development, hence many will have noted that these works commenced early in November 2018. The Parish Council will have a better idea from the Developer on the duration of the demolition works at our next meeting on 5th February 2018 and we will then be in a position to provide a further update. At present, the Parish Council is reliably informed that works are ahead of schedule.
Please note that the former RAF Guardhouse (immediately on the right-hand side as you enter the current development through the white gates at the top of Wellington Avenue) is thought to be not included in the current demolition programme as it is potentially earmarked for major refurbishment as Newton’s future Community Hall. This is subject to appropriate planning consent, budget and other approvals to ensure the building is viable and Newton’s best option for such a purpose.
