Huge new Nottinghamshire development to bring ‘ better opportunities’

today9 July 2022 8

Background
share close

Residents are excited to see what the new aviation and space centre will bring to a Nottinghamshire town. The centre will replace the demolished Livestock Market on Great North Road, Newark, after the project received planning permission earlier this year.

Many residents are excited to see what the centre will mean for the town and its children, as the facility will be offering a wide range of training. The Royal Air Force will also be supporting the centre, which will have 350 students and create 38 staff jobs.

Support worker, Rachel Lowe, 32, of Newark, lives close to where the site will be and said she has “no concerns” about the new centre. Rachel said: “It’s going to create jobs and its going to hopefully improve the town a little bit more and bring more people in, and anything to improve the RAF would be a good help.”

“I like that it has replaced the cattle market, and It’s good for children to get training.” Rachel explained that she would love for her son to want to do something like that when he’s older, due to the range of skills the students would be learning.

She said: “My fellow is big into aviation and we are going to an air show next week so hopefully one day this one (her son) might want to join the RAF or do something in aviation.” Another nearby resident, Welder fabricator, Brian Payne, 37, also thinks that the centre will be a “brilliant” idea.

He said: “It’s giving the youngsters better opportunities than when I was growing up. It is something to invest in the youngsters.”

Brian feels that the students will be able to learn valuable “skills that are going to be around for a while, they are not dying skills.” An 83 year old resident who did not wish to be named said: “It’s great for the young people as it’s somewhere that they can go and start at the bottom and work through it.”

However not all residents in the area are excited about the centre. Transport clerk, Anna Gajowiak, 38, of Newark, feels that the centre is “not the best idea.”

She explained: “It will make it more busy with the traffic and it’s already busy with the lorry park and a school in the area will just make it worse. There’s much better spaces in Newark to have something like that.

“That (the centre) will definitely be challenging as its already quite busy sometimes because of the rail line and the lorries. We are quite lucky as its a small area here, and there’s not much space to build more things.”

Similarly another resident has concerns about the traffic that could come from the school and says it can be a “nightmare” with the lorry park.
