Ollerton & Boughton Neighbourhood Study

URBED have been commissioned by Newark & Sherwood District Council to undertake a piece of work as part of the Ollerton & Boughton Neighbourhood Study, looking at options for a new housing development between the Hallam Road and Retford Road Estates. The land has been allocated for a mix of housing, open space and community uses under Policy OB/MU/2 in the Allocations and Development Management DPD, which was adopted in July 2013.

The Council wish to bring forward a high quality development of approximately 120 new homes which enhances and improves connections to both the Hallam Road and Retford Road Estates. The Council were keen to undertake this piece of work in collaboration with local residents and the first part of the study has been carried out by consultation experts Planning for Real between August and September 2017. 

URBED 's role on the project is to take on board local people's comments and views of the new development and draw up a series of masterplan options for the site. URBED are working alongside Aspinall Verdi, who will be providing market assessment and delivery advice for the scheme.
