We present a supersymmetric extension of the exotic Newtonian Chern–Simons gravity theory in three spacetime dimensions. The underlying new non-relativistic superalgebra is obtained by expanding the AdS superalgebra and can be written as two copies of the enhanced Nappi–Witten algebra, one of which is augmented by supersymmetry. We show that the exotic Newtonian superalgebra allows to introduce a cosmological constant to the extended Newtonian supergravity. Interestingly, the obtained supergravity action contains the extended Newton–Hooke supergravity as a sub-case.
