New plan for area’s history

Historical figures with Notts links such as Robin Hood and the Pilgrim Fathers can help the county’s economy to grow

That’s according to the Notts Growth Plan which was approved by member of Notts County Council’s policy committee this week.

The plan includes proposed to develop a major new visitor experience at Sherwood Forest and a feasability study into a new attraction based on the history of the Pilgrim Fathers in Bassetlaw.

The tourism plans are amongst almost 50 major proposals to support businesses, create training opportunities, improve infrastructure and bring jobs and growth to the area.

Notts County Council chief executive Mick Burrows, who has led the development of the Growth Plan, said: “I have been blown away by the enthusiasm, ideas and commitment to growth shown by Nottinghamshire’s business community. It bodes extremely well for the future economic prospects of the county.”
