Newark Civic Trust is a society for people who share an interest in environmental matters, with a specific concern for the built environment of Newark and its surrounding villages.
Our aim is to safeguard the area’s heritage without frustrating its future development. Thus, whilst we defend its historic buildings, we also encourage new, imaginative, high quality developments that enhance its beauty, prestige and vitality. We also campaign to get authorities to act when necessary to counter the effects of graffiti, litter and vandalism.
We take an active interest in planning issues, and the District Council invites our comments on all proposals that affect properties in the Newark Conservation Area as well as any major developments beyond that zone.
In order to help safeguard important buildings from deterioration, our volunteers run Conservation Watch and we also maintain our own Buildings at Risk Register.
We warmly welcome new members and encourage everyone’s involvement in our various activities.
