Extra chance to see eco-display

More news, no ads



An extra public exhibition outlining plans to develop an eco-town at RAF Newton has been planned for Tuesday.

The date has been added to the programme of drop-in exhibitions in the Newton and Bingham area.

The former RAF headquarters at Newton will host the exhibition, which runs from 1pm-7pm.

Similar events have already taken place at East Bridgford, Radcliffe, Bingham and Shelford.

The final exhibition takes place at the Old Courthouse, Bingham, on Thursday, from 10am-6pm.

The head of rural asset management and development at The Crown Estate, Mr Nick Harper, said: “There has been a great deal of interest in the concept of an eco-town and in the exhibitions we have held so far, and we are pleased to be able to provide an additional opportunity for members of the public to contribute to the process.

“The Crown Estate and its partners value the views and opinions of local residents and we hope to involve as much of the community as possible in this initial stage of the consultation, to help contribute to our submission to the Government later in the year.”

The exhibition shows the initial assessment by The Crown Estate and its partners, Defence Estates and Newton And Nottingham LLP, of the idea for an eco-town, announced by the Government in April.

Three options have been identified in which a sustainable community of up to 6,000 homes, facilities and green open spaces could be developed.

Visitors can complete a questionnaire to give their thoughts on how this community might be delivered best.

The findings will be included in a submission to the Department for Communities and Local Government.

The information in the exhibition and the questionnaire is available at www.newtoneco town.com, or an information pack is available by telephoning 0845 450 3210.
