The Tourist Information Centre in Hugh Town will move to the new Porthcressa shelter by the start of June.

Some Councillors learned about plans to relocate the service from a report presented at the Policy and Resources meeting in February. There were calls for wider consultation on the plans in that meeting.

Julian Pearce from the Economic Development team says around a dozen key stakeholders, including the Islands Partnership and major businesses have been asked for their views and he says they back the move.

He hopes that the relocation to a new site will encourage visitors to discover Porthcressa. Much of the preparation for the move will be undertaken in the quieter period after gig weekend.

The new TIC will be an open office and shelter space with seating for the public to enjoy the views.
