A new website has been launched to create a one-stop-shop for new and established businesses in North Kesteven.
Available at www.businessnk.co.uk, the site contains a whole host of information about the District, business support, current projects and investments, vacant units, business news and case studies.
It has been created by North Kesteven District Council’s Economic Development Team and was launched at a recent business networking event hosted by the authority.
The District is home to businesses of all sizes, from large national employers through to small, independent traders.
In the last 20 years, the local economy has consistently grown faster than the national average. Key growth sectors include food and farming, manufacturing, engineering, and construction, while since 2000 there has been considerable growth in the services sector, particularly business services, retail and tourism.
Councillor Richard Wright, Leader of NKDC and Executive Board Member with special interest in economic development, said: “North Kesteven is a great place to do business and our new website recognises this.
“A vibrant local economy is so important for the District. This is one of the reasons we work closely with businesses, understanding what their issues, expectations and aspirations are. Only then can we make sure our support suits their needs.
“The new website creates another way for us to keep the dialogue open with businesses, but also enable them to find out so much information about opportunities within North Kesteven.
“We hope they find it a useful resource.”
