Have Your Say on the English Riviera Destination Management Plan

13th December 2016

Categories: Latest News

The draft English Riviera Destination Management Plan 2016-2021 Pride in Place, has been published for public consultation.

It is proposed that this Plan will replace the existing Tourism Strategy and establish a shared approach between key stakeholders to effectively manage tourism as a whole for Torbay.

The plan will focus collaborative effort, reduce duplication and maximise local investment whilst making the most of available resources. This approach is supported by VisitBritain and VisitEngland as an essential tool further supporting Government policy, encouraging destination organisations to become focussed and efficient.

Executive Lead for Tourism, Culture and Harbours, Councillor Nicole Amil, said: “To build an effective Tourism Destination Management Plan we have gathered as much information as we can to ensure the way forward for Tourism in Torbay is effective and we exceed the expectations of our visitors. We now want to hear your views on the draft Plan and encourage you to feedback using the short survey.”

Earlier visitor and industry surveys took place in 2016 which have helped TDA, who wrote the plan on behalf of Torbay Council, to understand what people look for when they book a holiday, how they use the internet to research and book; and what influences their decision on choosing a destination.

You can read the draft plan and have your say by visiting to complete the questionnaire.

This consultation opens on Friday 9 December 2016 and closes on Friday 27 January 2017.
