    Newark and Sherwood Compensation


    Newark and Sherwood is the name of a local government district found within the ceremonial county of Nottinghamshire, in the East Midlands region of England. The district is in fact the largest in the county and is largely rural in nature in spite of being home to the towns of Newark-on-Trent, Southwell and Ollerton.

    The Formation Of The District

    As is the case with the vast majority of local government districts within the UK, Newark and Sherwood was formed by the Local Government Act of 1972 and officially came into existence on the 1st April 1974. This was as a result of a merger of the municipal borough of Newark with the Newark Rural District and the Southwell Rural District. The new district was originally called simply Newark, but the name was changed on the 1st April 1995 to Newark and Sherwood.

    The Makeup Of The Current District

    In its current form, the district of Newark and Sherwood covers an area of just over 250 square miles and has a number of distinct areas. The south eastern part of the district is made up of a number of settlements which tend to be dormitory suburbs for workers who commute into Nottingham for work. Many of the villages in the west of the district are former coal mining settlements, whereas Newark on Trent itself is an historic market town which attracts a good deal of tourism.

    The Population Of The District

    According to the latest available census data, the district of Newark and Sherwood is home to approximately 115,000 permanent residents. This gives the district a population density of around 460 per square mile, which is actually quite a low figure. What that means is that accidents and injuries are relatively uncommon in the district but that doesn’t make Newark and Sherwood compensation claims impossible.
