Newark and Sherwood has a lot to be proud of; a captivating history, beautiful countryside, characterful market towns, world renowned businesses and an enviable location at the crossroads of the country’s transportation network. As a small district council with a large land footprint we are responsible for over 5,500 council houses and associated community venues.
