Engagement Commences on New Tourism Strategy

Published on Monday, 8 February 2021 at 4:38:12 PM

Surveys are now open for community members and industry stakeholders to have their say on the future direction of tourism in the Shire of Denmark as a new Tourism Strategy is developed.

Great Southern Centre for Outdoor Recreation Excellence (GSCORE) has developed two surveys, one for community members and another for business operators, the results from which will be collated to provide decision makers with a better understanding of the community vision for the future of tourism in Denmark.

All community members are invited and encouraged to complete the surveys which will play an important role in the development of a comprehensive strategy which will aim to build on local industry strengths, to identify the social, economic and environmental impact of tourism on the community and to guide the development of a sustainable visitor servicing model.

Consultation with the community during the development of the new strategy is of key importance to both GSCORE and Shire of Denmark.

“As we hope to continue to build the reputation of Denmark as a tourist destination, we want the community to have the chance to share their views on how our Shire manages visitors,” Shire of Denmark Acting CEO David Schober said.

“Tourism is an important part of our local economy and we want all community members to have the chance to lead us in the right direction, especially as tourist numbers increase and demands on our resources and services rise.”

“With in-depth consultation with our community and business operators, we look forward to developing a strategy for tourism which will benefit locals and visitors alike.”

In addition to the surveys, GSCORE will also be facilitating a number of business operator and community workshops to further inform the strategy development.

Business operator workshops will be held in Nornalup and Denmark next week and community workshops will follow in March with details to be published online at: https://www.yourdenmark.wa.gov.au/join-the-conversation-on-tourism-in-denmark .


The surveys will be open until Sunday 28 February 2021.
