No overall political control at Newark Town Council following 'breakdown of trust' between coalition parties




There is now no overall political control at Newark Town Council following what has been described as a breakdown of trust between the parties who were ruling by coalition.

Labour, independents and the Green Party had formed an alliance to govern the town with the single party with the biggest number of elected councillors, the Conservatives, in opposition.
