What our businesses say:


North Notts Was an obvious choice for Lion with our core team and 70% of workforce coming from
the area. We found the ideal industrial unit that had the scale for expanding our growing fleet of lorries and portable roadway stock. With excellent links to major road networks across the UK, and ferry services which
give us easy access to our German and French depots, we are able to effectively service more of Europe.

Dale Robinson - Managing Director of Lion Trackhire

Our family has been at Hodsock Priory for over 250 years, so we know the area pretty well by now.
As chair of the North Nottinghamshire Place Board, I have the pleasure of working with the other board
members and our North Notts Envoys to showcase just what we have to offer. North Nottinghamshire
businesses, residents and visitors really are spoilt for choice with fantastic places to live, work and play.

George Buchanan - Hodsock Priory & North Notts Place Board Chair

This growing part of the UK is well-connected and bursting with opportunities. Being a North
Notts Envoy perfectly complements the great work we are already doing with businesses in the
Retford and North Notts area. North Notts Envoys is also a supportive environment in which you
can make new contacts and stay ahead of what’s happening in the local economy
