POLL: Do you support the plans to transform the former Marks & Spencer site on Stodman Street, Newark?
Plans have been formalised to transform the former Marks & Spencer site on Stodman Street, Newark, to bring new homes, shops and employment opportunities to the town centre.
A planning application has been submitted by architects RG+P Ltd to build a new site comprising a mixed-use housing and commercial development featuring 29 new homes and between two to four new retail units.
Newark and Sherwood District Council bought the site in March 2020. Despite marketing the building, no viable offers or approaches for large retail premises were made, but it was clear there was an interest for smaller retail spaces.
This led the district council to explore how the current building could be reconfigured and repurposed.
