For the tourism industry...
Our aim at Lancaster City Council is to promote the district's ‘City, Coast and Countryside’.
The visitor economy is worth over £260 million to our district, supporting over 4,500 jobs, with more than 4.6 million visits a year to our main visitor destinations of Morecambe, Lancaster and the rural areas. The industry also plays a key role in economic development and regeneration.
Our strategic objectives are to develop the local tourism product, actively market the district, provide high quality visitor services and integrate local destination management to improve the visitor experience.
