The need for a Cotswolds Destination Management Plan

In February 2013 VisitEngland invited local tourism partners and businesses across the Cotswolds to step forward and develop a Destination Management Plan. The plan aims to set strategic direction for tourism across the Cotswolds and harness collaboration across all sectors to bring growth in the industry.After a great deal of discussion and consultation we have now finished the Destination Management Plan and the vision for the Cotswolds  which aspires to make it a year round destination through the sustainable growth of the Cotswolds visitor economy by 5% per annum .

Over the coming months we will be working to put in place a new partnership structure to best deliver this plan, which has the support of all the Local Authorities and LEPs across the Cotswolds, the Cotswolds Conservation Board and the Private Sector.

A copy of the plan is attached and we would welcome your active support in transforming the vision of the Destination Management Plan into reality.
