Local Influence Network

Following feedback from tenants, the Local Influence Network has been set up to give tenants the opportunity to speak to one another and share their views on their local community with District Council officers.

There are three specific networks for our district, one for Newark, one for Sherwood and a third for all rural locations. Local Influence Network meetings will take place every few months. There are, already, a number of willing tenants wishing to take part but more are being encouraged to join and feedback their views to help shape and improve local areas.

Tenants can get involved in many engagement opportunities, this includes policy reviews, mystery shopping, estate walkabouts and much more.

The creation of these Local Influence Networks began after tenants often expressed a desire to get involved on a local level and provide feedback and expertise on the area they live in and the District Council thought this a fantastic idea to form part of their engagement and consultation work with tenants and residents.

Residents can get involved at any time by emailing Getinvolved@newark-sherwooddc.gov.uk.
