Visitor Economy Strategy and Destination Management Plans

Fill in the survey >

What is the consultation about?

Scarborough Borough Council is looking to refresh its visitor economy strategy and develop a practical and strategic destination marketing and development plan for the whole of the Borough. Within the plan, there will be targeted activities focused on each destination within the borough. 
We are just at the beginning of this process. To get things started, it would be really helpful if you could spare a few moments to offer your initial views on what's needed, by filling out the survey above.

To assist us in the development of the plans we have appointed Susan Briggs from the Tourism Network.
