RTS
23/10
The Committee was presented with the baseline information in respect of Tourism.

The Head of Regeneration and Economic Development provided and explained the Tourism baseline information for the review. Particular emphasis was given to:-

- The Tourism team structure and operation
- A marketing budget was not held with the Tourism team as it was now part of the budget for the newly formed Communications team.
- The team was benchmarked each year against other Councils.
- Tourist accommodation was limited in the borough, particularly in the Town Centre. The Committee were advised of the availability of the three Travelodge / Premier Inns in the area, and of proposed developments on North Shore.
- Direct funding was allocated to visitTeesvalley from ONE North East, which is then disseminated on behalf of the 5 Local Authorities, but it was asked if Stockton was receiving its fair share and if this could be examined.
RTS

Members were made aware that an additional meeting would be organised to receive the Winter Maintenance report. The meeting organised for 26th July 2010 would look at the Events baseline information.
