Issue details

Tourism Hospitality & Visitor Economy Study

1.1. A Tourism Hospitality & Visitor Economy Study has been prepared with the objective of providing a review of the provision of tourism infrastructure across the Arun District planning area alongside an assessment of future demand. The study also identifies how the sector might grow, together with the spatial implications of this growth, to support emerging planning policy in the new Local Plan.

1.2. Whilst this study was originally commissioned for planning purposes, and it has already been endorsed by the Planning Policy Committee, its outputs are far-reaching and directly impact on the work of the Economy Team.

1.3. This committee report provides a summary of the study and identifies the recommendations that are relevant to the economy team. It also advises members of the next steps for the implementation of those recommendations, and askes for these to be supported.
