320 New Homes with Campbell Tickell

HTA's Yorke Drive Estate has received outline planning consent for 320 new homes for Campbell Tickell on behalf of Newark and Sherwood District Council. 

The Yorke Drive Estate enjoys a well-connected location on Lincoln Road in Newark-on-Trent. Created in the 1960’s, the estate has maintained a strong community spirit but has suffered a decline in its reputation and condition since completion. HTA has been commissioned to develop, through comprehensive consultation, proposals for a transformation in both the perception and reality of the estate.

The designs involve the partial demolition and rebuilding of housing on the estate, together with further new housing utilising some of the under-used land formed by the Lincoln Road Playing Fields.

The proposals include:
• A new frontage and new access to create a new “front door” to the estate
on Lincoln Road;
• A new avenue through the estate, connecting to a refurbished street
network and public realm throughout;
• A safe, multi-functional park that serves the whole of Yorke Drive;
• New housing in a mix of tenures to modern space standards.
