The night-time offerings in Newark are being reviewed.

The public is being asked to have a say on how to encourage people into towns after dark and boost the night-time economy in Newark, Southwell, Ollerton and Edwinstowe.

It is part of efforts by Newark and Sherwood District Council to create a strategy for vibrant, inclusive and safe places to attract evening and night-time visitors.

The council is expected to award a contact next week for an expert to lead the Evening and Night-time Economy Strategy.

Work will start in the next couple of months and involve surveys, workshops and interviews with evening economy businesses, residents and users.

Council leader David Lloyd said: “Let me be clear, this is not about opening up lots of nightclubs in the district.

"Instead, this strategy is about ensuring that all businesses flourish and fulfil their potential after what has been an incredibly challenging couple of years.

“We will receive feedback from residents, businesses and community groups to ensure that the final strategy will reflect what is needed for our excellent town centres.

“I am excited to see where this project takes us.”
