What a YES vote for the North Notts BID means to Bassetlaw

What a YES vote for the North Notts BID means to Bassetlaw

Business Improvement Districts (BIDs) aren’t new – towns, cities and industrial areas across the UK have been successfully running BIDs since 2005, and voting to renew them every 5 years – a very positive endorsement of the value of BIDs. There are currently over 250 BIDs in the UK with our close neighbours Lincoln, Mansfield and Nottingham already BID towns.

But there is something new about North Notts’ exciting and ambitious plans for Bassetlaw – we’re aiming to become the very first area-wide Business Improvement District (BID) in the UK!

Despite the rain this afternoon I’ve had a brilliant drive through Bawtry and Austerfield enjoying their ‘yellowness’ in honour of Le Tour de Yorkshire which passes through our region this coming Saturday 30th April.

There’s yellow bunting galore and a wonderful array of yellow bicycles fixed to fences, propped up against walls and even on top of buildings, together with a few blue bicycles, all lining the route that Le Tour will be taking.
