South West Tourism is a member of the Partners for England forum, a collaborative initiative owned by public and private stakeholders with a shared sense of purpose: an interest in the prosperity of England's visitor economy. The objective is to create a shared sense of purpose through agreeing a core set of priorities for joint action and delivery.
A forum was created in 2007 with the remit of securing engagement on key issues surrounding the English tourism industry. The forum:
The recognition of the important role of local authorities and other key partners, and the need for engagement at all levels to ensure support for, and delivery of, strategic and sustainable tourism has led to the development of a Place Making Charter, through the Partners for England initiative.
The Place Making Charter has been developed to help realise the crosscutting economic, environmental and social benefits of the visitor economy where a focus on destination management and development is essential.
The Charter promotes continuous quality improvement and provides a core set of principles (integrate; inform; innovate; invest and improve) recognising that places are unique. Further information on the Place Making Charter can be found by clicking here.
