If you’re part of a community or organisation that would like to prepare and develop a tourism plan to make your rural town or village a prosperous visitor destination, this page is for you.
As part of our service, we like to connect rural communities with the public bodies and organisations who can share the benefit of their expertise. So, here you’ll find useful literature, links to organisations and their websites and a wealth of advice on how to identify what makes your town or village special, what it has to offer and the issues you should be considering.
