Working with other sectors National Grid VIP Programme VisitEngland has been invited to work with the National Grid on the Visual Impact Provision programme

Half a billion pounds will be made available to look at ways to minimise the visual impact of new pylons and power lines VistEngland is advising on the implications this will have for tourism

The programme is unprecedented internationally It demonstrates the value that we give to our countryside and the quality of

our national tourism product Working with other sectors National Marine Management Plans VisitEngland has been invited to work with the Marine Management Organisation (MMO) to help roll out a

series of Marine Management Plans MMO workshops and evaluation testing workshops are being held throughout coastal regions

VistEngland has emphasised the need to include the aspirations of the tourism sector at the earliest stage of development The programme is now underway in the East and South areas

The next region will be the south-west Working with other sectors Why tourism is important to the rail industry Most domestic visitors dont use rail

to go on holiday- but there are various sectors- domestic and international- that do depend on itespecially for day visits For many train operating companies, the only real opportunity to increase capacity is through off-peak travel

Rail is a most effective means to explore metropolitan cities outside London It also connects to most of our major

resort destinations It can help create packaging In addition to the day to day work we have other long-term strategic issues to tackle International Festival for

Business 2014 Issues around airports: Hub; Capacity; Gateway Status; and Connectivity are also recognised Whilst airports such as Manchester have spare capacity we need to create greater connectivity and attract more inbound flights to such hubs

We need to consider the changing population structure, innovation and changing consumer demands VisitEngland has a huge portfolio of high quality images that are freely available to promote

destinations and local landscapes [email protected]
