A NEW DESTINATION MANAGEMENT PLAN FOR THANET
An exciting new Destination Management Plan was tonight (Thursday 12 April) adopted by Thanet District Council’s Cabinet to help Thanet to gain more benefit from the visitors it receives.
The plan was created in consultation with stakeholders for the whole of Thanet to encourage partnership working to achieve its aims.
The three priority areas identified were:
Key activities for these priority areas have been included in the plan with timescales for delivery, identified partners and stakeholders, milestones, resources and outcomes.
The activities are focused on improving the visitor economy and encouraging investment in Thanet. It builds on current plans and activities and uses what’s unique about Thanet to make it stand out from the competition.
New ways of working to achieve the aims of the plan will be driven by a partnership between the tourism industry and the public sector, where TDC will act as a catalyst, facilitator and partner.
Cabinet member for Tourism, Cllr. Iris Johnston said: “I am delighted with the new Destination Management Plan. Tourism and the visitor economy is a priority for the council, as recognized by our Corporate Plan. The Destination Management Plan and activities will help to facilitate partnership working across sectors to achieve our agreed goals for the future of tourism in Thanet.”
