COVID-19:Recycling and garden waste collections
It is with deep regret that, with effect from Monday 30 March, collections of recycling (silver bin) and garden waste (brown bin) will temporarily cease across Newark and Sherwood. This is to ensure that collections of the critical waste (green/black bin) and medical waste can be prioritised at this challenging time.
Temporarily, people should place their recycling waste in with their critical waste (green/black bin). Any residents who have subscribed to the garden waste collection service by 1st April 2020, will receive a reduced rate if they choose to continue with this service in 2021-22.
Residents should continue to put their critical waste (green/black bin) out for collection on their normal days by 6.00am.
We apologise sincerely for the inconvenience this will inevitably cause.
As Parish Meetings are Suspended, villagers are asked to click here to view a new planning application and, if they wish, to respond to it individually.
Nottinghamshire County Council Coronavirus Support
Nottinghamshire County Council are coordinating the Hub for the whole of Nottinghamshire, both for volunteers and those in need of help. This is by way of a telephone number to our customer care centre, which is 0300 500 8080 - they will be able to give you any help and advice.
Their website may be helpful too:
It has a page specifically for volunteers and volunteer groups with helpful guidance: https://www.nottinghamshire.gov.uk/care/coronavirus/nottingham-and-nottinghamshire-community-support-and-volunteering-hub
COVID-19 briefing update for Parish/Town Councils
As Leader of the Council, I have been undertaking to keep our Councillors abreast of developments on a regular basis. These have taken the form of emails, daily or twice-daily, but as and when there have been significant developments. I am now aware that some of our Councillors are self-isolated or committed to voluntary activities and so might not be able to relay relevant information to you as speedily as they would prefer so some Councillors have asked that I send a direct email to Parish Councils with information that is pertinent and relevant to you. I am grateful therefore to colleagues for producing a punchier version of my messages to be sent to you. Hopefully these will give you information to disseminate and/or keep you up-to-date.
These do not replace or overlay direct messages from HART - our community response team - as they work with you on the crucial food, medicine and care requirements ahead of us.
May I please take this opportunity, on behalf of all Councillors and colleagues, to congratulate and thank you all for the speed, focus and cooperation that you are bringing to localising and caring for our communities. The task ahead, not least of coordinating activities, is not a straightforward one but it is a measure of proper recognition for you all that you are in many ways ahead of the game, and geared up for the weeks ahead. It is nothing short of exemplar of the vitality and altruism of our communities.
So .... thank you! For all you have done, are doing with us, and will be doing going forward.
I hope that these additional updates are of some use. We are taking the view that we must convey as much information as possible rather than assuming what might or might not interest people.
Cllr David Lloyd
Leader, Newark & Sherwood District Council
Councillor for the Newark Beacon Ward
Daily COVID-19 update
You may be concerned that you are currently unable to hold meetings including upcoming Annual Parish Meetings / Annual Council Meetings. Clearly the national focus is now on providing vital support for vulnerable people in our communities. Government advice is you simply rearrange these Meetings for when the country is over this public health crisis. The District Council is taking a similar approach with all meetings, with the exception of Planning and Policy & Finance Committee meetings, being cancelled. The limited meetings which will go ahead will be done on a remote basis to enable Councillors to remain at home.
As a Parish, you may wish to still consult with your Councillors to form views on planning applications or to seek consent for some financial expenditure etc. Our advice is that you undertake such consultations by phone and/or email and use any existing delegation arrangements and urgency provisions you may have adopted within your Parish.
In line with the latest Government advice, NSDC is regrettably closing more of its buildings and facilities to help people keep a safe distance and reduce the spread of Coronavirus (Covid-19). From Wednesday 25th March, the following facilities will be closed to members of the public:
- All play parks
- Castle House, Newark (DWP will continue to provide a limited service at Castle House for their most vulnerable customers)
- Hawtonville Local Office, Newark
- Ollerton Local Office, Ollerton
- Ollerton Advice and Jobs Centre, Ollerton Town Hall
- Southwell Advice Centre, Southwell Library
- The Buttermarket, Newark
- Sherwood Forest Arts & Craft Centre, Edwinstowe
- Newark Beacon Business Centre, Newark
- Public conveniences at The Gilstrap, Newark
However, NSDC Customer Services will remain open as normal to help residents with enquiries, prioritising critical enquiries, via phone: 01636 650 000 or email: email@example.com
For customers with complex needs who are unable to use these contact methods, we will have procedures in place to provide services to them via their carer/ nominated representative on a case by case basis.
New bookings for bulky waste collection are also being suspended although existing bookings will continue to be collected. Green, silver and brown bins will still be emptied as normal.
NSDC car parks and Newark lorry park will remain open as normal.
Building Control (which is a shared service) will now only visit dangerous structures or other extreme situations and all site inspections have been suspended.

By the end of this week, NSDC will be issuing £10,000 and £25,000 grants to eligible businesses as part of the Coronavirus (Covid-19) support package as follows:
- £10k grant per business in receipt of Small Business Rates Relief and Rural Rates Relief

- £25k grant per business in the Retail, Hospitality and Leisure Sector with a rateable value of more than £15k but under £51k at 11March 2020
Businesses with a rateable value of £51k or over are not eligible for this scheme but may be eligible for assistance via the Coronavirus Business Interruption Loan fund.
Deferring VAT and Income Tax Payments
We will support businesses by deferring Valued Added Tax (VAT) payments for three months. If you’re self-employed, Income Tax payments due in July 2020 under the Self-Assessment system will be deferred to January 2021.
For VAT, the deferral will apply from 20 March 2020 until 30 June 2020.

NSDC staff working arrangements
Following the Prime Minister’s briefing last night which included guidance about only attending work if “absolutely necessary”, we have now developed the following working from home arrangements for all staff.
With effect from Wednesday 25th March, all NSDC staff will be working from home (on a rota basis) with the exception of a limited number who will be required to form a core team of essential workers in office. This team will comprise a very limited number of the Senior Leadership Team, Business Managers and employees who have been identified by their business managers.
