Planning Approval for the Newark Gatehouse Transformation Project

The Newark Gatehouse Transformation Project has taken a leap forward this week with planning permission being granted for Martin Ashley Architects’ proposed scheme.

Our desire is for visitors to be able to look out across Newark from the top of the restored Gatehouse; which will be filled with fascinating interpretation about the 900 year story of this much-loved landmark.

The scheme also includes a new entrance on Beastmarket Hill, a new Entrance Pavilion providing accessible routes to higher levels of the NW Tower & Gatehouse, and a separate facility beneath the reimagined Moat Bridge which will host educational outreach activities and events as well as act as a community hub.
