Leader Announces Plans To Boost Tourism For Scarborough

The Leader of Scarborough Borough Council has announced how there could be a boost in tourism as part of a major project.

It is part of its new strategy called 'Build a Better Borough' and would involve improved tourist information and the opening up of the Town Hall for residents and visitors.

Councillor Steve Siddons said:

“We are launching a full public consultation in the New Year but have been talking and listening to residents and businesses since May.

The first move following those early consultations is a project to start to open up the Town Hall to the public and also see a Tourist Information Hub in the main Town Hall building.

Guest House owners at a meeting at the Bowls Club in October told us how they had been affected by the degrading of our Tourist Information service. We can now start to address that with a Tourist Information Hub.

The Guest House owners also noted their visitors’ other major concern was  the closure of public conveniences, a project we have immediately partly reversed and are now fully reviewing.

The Information Hub will be in the Town Hall building itself, the first of a series of projects to open up the Town Hall to the public. 

The Town Hall belongs to Scarborough People and they have told us they should have access to it."

Not sure how that will boost tourism. You have to find the town hall first before you can find a tourist hub, would be much better in one of the empty shops at the top of town - oh i forgot there used to be one!!

A super duper website or app would prob be a better way of doing things. It is nearly 2020 after all.
