Toursim growth report in district

Leicestershire County Council has commissioned consultants Hotel Solutions to undertake research to assess the potential for future tourist accommodation in five county areas, including the Harborough district.

The areas fall within the European-funded East Leicestershire LEADER area, where, if a bid is successful, cash would be available to support tourism next year.

This study is to test the market potential for tourism growth for existing or new tourist accommodation. Research will involve surveys of tourist businesses to understand how they are trading and their future business aspirations.

Anybody interested in putting forward an idea for upgrading, expanding or developing an existing tourism business or developing a new should contact Andrew Keeling, of Hotel Solutions, by calling 01522 789702.
