Business views on Lincoln Christmas Market shared with Senior Council Officials

Business views on Lincoln Christmas Market shared with Senior Council Officials

Following the news last week (Friday 10th February) that the City of Lincoln Council were proposing to not run the Lincoln Christmas market in 2023 and beyond, Lincoln BIG immediately sought the views of its members businesses via in person consultation and a digital survey. These requests for feedback have provided us with an immediate reaction as to how businesses in the City feel about the proposals.

Simon Beardsley, Managing Director of Lincoln BIG, said: “We have moved quickly to understand the views of businesses and today have placed them in front of the City Council’s Leaders.

“The Board of Lincoln BIG met with the Council representatives and a robust exchange of views was had to ensure that our members views and concerns were heard and fully understood.

“As a result of the meeting the City of Lincoln Council were able to provide more detail about the proposal and over the next few days, we will publish a list of questions and answers on our website.

“We are grateful to the City of Lincoln Council for meeting with us so quickly and listening to our members views. We hope they will be fully considered when the full Council meets on the 20th February to consider their final position.”

The work Lincoln BIG have been undertaking with members has uncovered some really important information and we continue to seek the views of members and will ensure new information continues to be place before the Council promptly.

Simon concluded: “We have worked closely with the Lincolnshire Chamber of Commerce and Lincolnshire Food and Drink to ensure the voice of business is heard, whichever way the vote goes on Monday we will continue to fight for the best outcome for our local economy and encourage businesses to engage with us so collectively we can together gain the best outcome for Lincoln.”
