Basingstoke's famous roundabouts are up for business sponsorship
DESTINATION Basingstoke and Basingstoke and Deane Borough Council have teamed up to offer local businesses the opportunity to advertise on the borough’s Basingstoke’s famous roundabouts.
Felicity Edwards, managing director of Destination Basingstoke, said: “Basingstoke is renowned for its roundabouts, and they offer a great opportunity to local businesses to give their brand 24 hour a day visibility.
“Until now only a few businesses have taken up the opportunity, but with our new dedicated web pages and clear pricing, it’s never been easier - or better value - to get your business noticed.
“And it complements our Businesses Backing Basingstoke campaign perfectly.
“Some of the roundabouts are already proving popular.”
Most of Basingstoke’s roundabouts are available and businesses can buy a specially commissioned sign with their logo to be positioned at one or all of the entry points.
Prices range from £300 to £3,600 a year.
Felicity said it is a simple application process, with Destination Basingstoke providing all of the support.
Basingstoke and Deane’s Cabinet Member for Planning Councillor Donald Sherlock said: “Some businesses have sponsored roundabouts in the area in the past but this is the first time that this opportunity is being actively marketed. “Hundreds of drivers will see the sponsorship, giving businesses the chance to get their name known, show their support for the community and back Destination Basingstoke’s work to promote the area.”
All the roundabouts with their locations are listed together with prices on a new website basingstokeroundabouts.co.uk.
