Lindum Group has submitted an outline planning application to Newark and Sherwood Council for an additional 450,000 sq ft floorspace of employment land at Overfield Park, Newark.

Lindum Group has submitted an outline planning application to Newark and Sherwood Council for an additional 450,000 sq ft floorspace of employment land at Overfield Park, Newark.

Subject to planning approval Lindum will buy 12 acres of the land to be included in the development from Newark and Nottinghamshire Agricultural Society in a move it says will provide an economic boost for the Showground and expand the current Overfield Park development.

A spokesperson for the Agricultural Society said: “The Newark and Nottinghamshire Agricultural Society has agreed to release an area of under-used land in the South-West corner of the Showground, which has largely been surplus to operational requirements for some time.

“The Society is pleased to have agreed the sale of the land to Lindum Group as an extension to the existing Overfield Business Park for the development of business and commercial units. This development will generate much needed employment and enhance economic prospects for the district in this strategic location.

“The impact on our operational activities and customers will be limited and will be readily offset using alternative arrangements. Part of the agreement will also facilitate an additional multi-mode, all-purpose entrance/exit for the Showground via Godfrey Drive (and the A17), which we are sure will be welcomed by everyone and will help with access and egress to some of the existing events held on the site and in particular assist with mitigating the occasional weekend congestion on the A46 Winthorpe roundabout.”
