Nottinghamshire County Council opens online consultation to refresh visitor economy

Thousands of tourism-related businesses are urged to have their say on the visitor economy.

An online consultation created by Nottinghamshire County Council to refresh the visitor economy strategy is open until Friday, October 14.

The purpose of the strategy is to help re-launch the tourism sector post the covid-19 pandemic and the current cost of living crisis.


“I'm urging attractions, businesses, supply chain sectors, and our council partners to get involved in this online consultation on the future of our visitor economy in Nottinghamshire.” said Keith Girling, the county council’s cabinet member for economic development and asset management.

Before the pandemic, the UK tourism industry was one of the fastest growing, employing over two million people, but is now one of the worst hit sectors.

He added: "The time is now ripe to re-examine how we can recover and get the best out of our county's unique selling points, rich history and natural environment for our visitors and the businesses and organisations that serve them,

“We want to hear from those at the heart of Nottinghamshire's tourism industry, from larger visitor economy attractions and businesses through to volunteers at small museums or if you run your own bed and breakfast."

To participate in the visitor economy strategy consultation visit https://consult.nottinghamshire.gov.uk/cultural-services/nottinghamshire-visitor-economy-strategy-feedback/ and answer the nine questions.

The new strategy aims to return to pre-pandemic tourism levels by 2025.

Revised documents include making the most of Robin Hood and Sherwood Forest and Nottinghamshire rich natural history.
