Save Glamorgan Spring Bay Council Visitor Information Centres
This campaign has ended.
Reverse the decision to divest from tourism services and maintain the operation of the three Visitor Information Centres in the municipality; those being Triabunna, Swansea and Bicheno visitor information centres on Tasmania's spectacular east coast.
Why is this important?
Tourism provides a vitally important income stream for many in the communities within the Glamorgan Spring Bay Council municipal area.
The tourism industry directly employs some 2,000 locals. In addition, 15% of the municipality's residents work in the accommodation and food services industries. There are over 350 properties listed on the popular short term rental website Airbnb and dozens of businesses in the municipality offering a huge range of activities for locals and visitors alike, including walking, kayaking, surfing, fishing, camping, cruising, wine tasting and wildlife as well as the world famous Freycinet and Maria Island National Parks.
The services provided by the Visitor Information Centres is vital to continuing the vitality of this region and the recommendations provided by these services help to maintain the many businesses in the municipality that rely on the tourism dollar.
How it will be delivered
Signatures will be emailed to the General Manager of Glamorgan Spring Bay Council in accordance with the requirements of the Local Government Act 1993 (Tas.)
