Devolved Services

Submitted on 13 March 2015 by Matthew Ruddle

The Town Council has approved the transfer of a range of services from Newark & Sherwood District Council.  The services which will be devolved are:

  • Newark Market

  • Parks & Open Spaces

  • Play Areas

  • Public Conveniences

  • Environmental Improvement Schemes

This is a significant and exciting decision which will see responsibility for them being devolved down to the Town Council.  This means that there will be more local control over those services which are delivered to the community of Newark. 

The Town Council is particularly pleased that it will now be running Newark market and will have full control over what happens in the Market Place.
