Pygott & Crone is proud to be on the Place Board for the Invest Gainsborough programme and I have recently made the pledge to become an economic ambassador for the town which is undergoing a major regeneration plan. The board is a group of private sector organisations which are working with West Lindsey District Council to help drive inward investment into the town through their network of contacts. Last year West Lindsey District Council committed to investing £18 million into housing-led economic growth and heritage-led regeneration; this kick-started the Invest Gainsborough programme which launched a year ago.
Giving Gainsborough a further boost
This month 60 other local businesses made a pledge to raise the profile of the Lincolnshire town further.
AMP Rose, Beechwood Finance and Firecracker were just some of the companies which have also committed to becoming economic ambassadors.
More people are now equipped to give Gainsborough a further boost after receiving a dedicated toolkit highlighting what Gainsborough has to offer and understanding about the town’s wider regeneration plans.
I’m proud to be an economic ambassador for Gainsborough, it’s a town that is really starting to attract peoples’ attention. I’ve been banging the drum for this town for many years and I’m pleased that more investors from the south are taking advantage of the affordable land and fantastic residential and commercial development opportunities on offer.
Now with a growing team of economic ambassadors I’m confident that Gainsborough’s message will be strengthened and heard by even more people.
International hotel chain Travelodge has confirmed it will open a new hotel on the former Sun Inn site and a joint venture company has been established between Dransfield and West Lindsey District Council to help refurbish and let empty units on Market Street. It’s an exciting time for the town.
Pygott & Crone has worked in the town for many years and markets the commercial offices at Marshall’s Yard. Now occupied by more than 90%, it’s clear that more businesses are taking advantage of the affordable rates and great travel links the town has to offer.
