Accommodation Data No Longer Available

tourist info schiller shelterIt seems we won’t be able to judge the success of the tourism season from the percentage of holiday accommodation being occupied this summer.

That data has been collected for the past few years by the Council’s Tourism group.

Cllr Marian Bennett had asked for data in the Planning and Economic Development meeting last week. But she was told that the Council has handed over that task to the Islands’ Partnership.

Cllr Christine Savill raised Marian’s question in the IP board meeting and reported back to Full Council that the Partnership has no system in place for collecting that information.

Christine said the tourism body has had some successes and has been steadily growing in membership from both Scilly and the mainland.

And she said that businesses had noticed the reported 5% increase in Steamship Company bookings filtering through.
