Regeneration Cabinet Member – Minutes – 30 April 2014
82 (23) 2013 VISITOR FIGURES: THE LOCAL AND NATIONAL PICTURE – The Director of Places submitted a report which provided a comparison between North Lincolnshire visitor figures and those nationally.
The report outlined that tourism was important to the local economy, and whilst North Lincolnshire was not a traditional resort, with an attractive coastline, it did have a quality tourism offer which ranged from adrenaline sports to historic houses and gardens.
In 2013 there were over 2.9 million (2,946,228) day-visits to events and attractions in North Lincolnshire, with numbers up by over 318,000 on 2012, an increase of over 12%.
Visits to most attractions in North Lincolnshire had continued to rise and there had been a marked increase in the number of visitors to council owned venues such as Normanby Hall and the 20-21Visual Arts Centre.
Other North Lincolnshire attractions have seen rises as well. The Pods was becoming well established and had seen an increase of over 96,000, the Baths Hall doubled its 2012 figures and food events in the area still seemed very popular.
Resolved – That the report be noted.
