Commercial Impact

It is almost impossible to quantify the potential losses, in economic terms that could follow the development of both Coddington and Averham, as sand and gravel quarries.

There are a large number of self employed and small businesses in Newark and area who employ 8 or less people. (Noteable exceptions are Currys Know How, NSK Bearings, Laurens Pattiseries, Vodafone, Fullflow etc.)  

Small companies may find it easier to adapt, or move base of operations, in order to cope with pressures of access, but bigger companies may find it much more difficult to adapt and may well consider moving with an impact on employment, revenue in business rates for the council and consequent losses in services.
