Tourism Impact Statement
A Tourism Impact Statement can be required as part of a planning application for a tourism development project, for example, an extension of an existing caravan or holiday park through to the development of a new visitor attraction or hotel with supporting leisure facilities.
The Tourism Impact Statement will help to identify the likely positive and negative impacts which a tourism development project can have on a local area – from the impact on host community facilities through to local businesses, traffic movements and job creation.
A Tourism Impact Statement can also be required for other non-tourism related development projects, for example, an onshore windfarm. In this instance, the Tourism Impact Statement is used to identify the potential impacts which the development project could have on the visitor economy in the locality of the project.
The Tourism Impact Statement can often form part of the Environment Impact Analysis. Mitigation strategies can also be prepared to minimise any potential negative and maximise the positive impacts of tourism and other non-tourism development projects.
