Local Solutions. Boosting the Visitor Economy

Posted on

Commissioned by the Local Government Association’s Culture Media & Sports Board this report/policy paper looks at recent and proposed devolution deals in England and the opportunities that devolution presents to boost the visitor economy.  In doing so it highlights the importance of: tourism and the visitor economy to the UK, the critical function of destinations and destination management in supporting  local businesses, the important but financially threatened role of local government in underpinning their own local destinations and their management and marketing and then discusses how devolution and the powers and  funding associated with it may now help boost the visitor economy in those Cities, town, County and other areas that agree a devolution deal (as at September 2016, 6 agreed and 34 proposal being considered).  See the report at:
