Newark Castle Station
We have a long history of partnership working with Newark and Sherwood District Council (NSDC). The most significant scheme came with the landmark Newark Castle Station development, which provided 176 homes for rent or low-cost home ownership on land that had been derelict for years.
Having worked for Newark and Sherwood District Council for 30 years, Jill Sanderson has seen first-hand the work we did to transform the landscape of the area. We now own around 1,850 homes in this area.
One of the listed buildings on the site, the clock tower, was converted into a dwelling. A new clock face was also fitted as part of the build.
The redevelopment of this area provided prime living conditions for a huge number of people who needed it the most.
"The Newark Castle Station development in the early nineties transformed 13 acres of
land which had been derelict since the late sixties – much of it had the appearance of an
overgrown bog, the old ironworks had left some of the land contaminated, and it had
become a local eyesore. On top of that, there were listed buildings within it to contend with.
"Together, NCHA and NSDC developed an ambitious plan to preserve the listed buildings, convert the old industrial structures and provide 176 homes for rent or low-cost
home ownership. The area is on the edge of the town centre of Newark, so it provided
really prime living conditions for a huge number of people who needed it the most."
