The focus for the future of tourism in Yorkshire is very much on the quality of the tourism product. In an increasingly competitive marketplace, it is important that operators strive to continually improve the quality of their product to ensure that customer expectations are exceeded.
It is always advisable to fully research the local competition to find out what recent developments and improvements have taken place, as this can inform future decisions. YTB can help with all research requirements, scroll through the market intelligence section of the site to find out more about the range of services. In addition, before any expansion plans are put into progress, specific legislation should be considered, for instance it is advisable to contact the planning department of the local authority to find out more about planning permission for either property extensions and alterations or change of use.
There may be tourism grants available to facilitate any expansion plans. Details of current schemes can be found in the grants section of this website.
