Appointment confirmed on £20m Ollerton Regeneration project

Following a successful bid process, C+A Design are proud to announce they have been appointed to the £20m Ollerton Town Centre Regeneration project.

Following a successful bid process, C+A Design are proud to announce they have been appointed to the £20 million Ollerton Town Centre Regeneration project. This project, in collaboration with Newark and Sherwood District Council and construction firm Willmott Dixon, aims to transform Ollerton by creating a modern public sector service hub and improving the Town Centre facilities.

The regeneration will introduce several new facilities to Ollerton. The introduction of a library will provide a modern space for learning and community activities and a boutique cinema will offer entertainment and cultural events. The project also includes new retail spaces and food and beverage opportunities, to attract visitors and support local businesses, along with an improved public realm and spaces for community use. A range of new homes rounds off the design, to meet the community's needs.

The development is located within a triangular area bordered by Forest Road, Sherwood Drive, and Rufford Avenue. This central location aims to improve the connectivity between these three routes and draw more visitors to Ollerton’s town centre, boosting the local economy. The design seeks to enhance community spirit by providing modern amenities and promoting the town’s rich heritage.

A key part of the regeneration is the creation of a public sector service hub. This hub will centralise the services of the Town and District Councils, making it easier for local residents to access advice, support, and adult education services. The improved access to these services is expected to benefit the local population significantly.

Associate and project lead Becky Glaves said,

It’s a really exciting project, and we are looking forward to working with the community, council and stakeholders to bring this regeneration project to fruition.

The project has recently completed RIBA Stage 2, marking an important milestone in its progress, with construction expected to start in spring 2025. The project is scheduled for completion by summer 2026. Watch this space for more updates as we continue on with this exciting project.
