Former Newark Marks and Spencer building bought by Newark and Sherwood District Council
It isn’t just a feud, it’s an M&S feud. A row has broken out over a council’s secret purchase of Newark’s empty Marks and Spencer store.
Conservative-led Newark and Sherwood District Council has bought the Stodman Street building for £540,000, prior to it going to auction for a second time.
The decision was taken under delegated powers in consultation between senior officers and the council leader with the leader of the opposition informed.
