Road review required
Recent experience makes me wonder just why big business has been actively encouraged to locate resources at Newark.

Eddie Stobart and others have established large operations and must now be regretting it because of the quite ridiculous traffic situation that occurs in the town with monotonous regularity.

The most recent antiques fair at Newark Showground was a case in point, generating queues on the A1, A17 and A46 from the early hours of the Thursday.

The queues on the A1 that occur every time a major event is held on the showground are particularly dangerous and it must be clear to all that the current road layout is not fit-for-purpose and needs to be reviewed.

Wind of change
Wind turbines are certainly not to everyone’s taste — either in terms of appearance, how they operate or assessments of their efficiency. More of them, however, continue to spring up.

Opponents argue that they are too expensive, they are inefficient, not very green and are an eyesore.

Supporters, on the other hand, say they are attractive, a good source of renewable energy, and will help reduce reliance on imported energy.

Three giant turbines are set to be built just outside Newark, in Hawton, after a developer’s successful appeal against Newark and Sherwood District Council’s decision to refuse planning permission.
