Tender announced for developing a Visitor Economy Strategy

Achieving a More Strategic Approach Across Local Government in Yorkshire & Humber to Sustain and Boost the Value of Local Visitor Economies

Specification for Tender

LGYH, on behalf of the Local Authorities in Yorkshire and Humber has launched a tender process for the development of a Visitor Economy Strategy for the region.

This specification outlines the requirements for a piece of work that can articulate the vision and delivery priorities for a more strategic approach across local authorities in Yorkshire & Humber with regard to growing the visitor economy – namely a “Visitor Economy Strategy”.

The Strategy must provide a valuable and sustained resource for Elected Members and local authority Officers in their planning of local and collaborative activities - with local partners - that support greater growth of the visitor economy.

A provider is sought to develop the strategic approach in partnership with Yorkshire and Humber’s local authorities – principally via an ‘Elected Member Taskgroup’ (and associated officer-level Core Advisors), which local authority leaders through the LGYH Council have established to oversee this work.

The Strategy should be ready to support and inform activity on the ground from 2015 and relate to a period through to at least the end of the decade.

The tender specification bac be found below. For more information contact Justin Homer on 01924 200262 or email
