Local interests can influence tourism policy by completing survey

Business owner/managers, their workforces and other stakeholders in the Shannon area are being given the opportunity this week by Shannon Chamber to have their say about the future direction of tourism policy in County Clare.

The Chamber is supporting Clare County Council in its efforts to obtain feedback from the public as it prepares to develop a ten-year tourism strategy for the county aimed at growing the sector in a sustainable manner.

“Tourism is currently worth well over €240 million per annum to the Clare economy and a vibrant tourism sector is also vital in attracting business investment,” said Helen Downes, Shannon Chamber CEO.

“Shannon Chamber was represented at a recent consultative workshop on future tourism strategy held by the Council in Shannon. We have now circulated a follow-up survey on the issue and are urging recipients to complete this by Monday next, March 25,” she said.

Those circulated are being encouraged to pass on the survey link to their workforces so that feedback is received from a wide network of people.

“This is an excellent opportunity for people to influence future tourism policy and priorities, as we will incorporate the feedback received into a special submission to the Council on the matter,” Ms Downes concluded.
