Plans to encourage more tourists to Newtown after the town's bypass has opened are being prepared by Newtown Town Council which wants local tourism operator involved.

A strategy is being prepared to consider ways of promoting the area.

"If you’re involved in tourism and would like to benefit from local plans we’d like to hear from you," said a town council spokesperson.

"The opening of the by-pass in 2019 will create many challenges but also many opportunities for the town to flourish, creating a newfound space from which we can all benefit."

Newtown town Councillor Richard Edwards said: "This is an opportunity to get involved and help develop a strategy that will promote Newtown as a destination post-bypass. We will be consulting widely with businesses and organisations in Newtown and surrounding area asking for their views on what direction and shape the strategy should take."
The town council said it aims to create stronger linkage and support within the local tourism sector to help make Newtown a great place to live, work and visit.

Proposals include:
·      The pulling together of a Tourism Plan that will help us all to grow over the coming years – shaped by your invaluable on the ground knowledge.
·      Keeping you in touch with all things tourism from a local, regional and national perspective (from town-based initiatives through to Powys Council and Visit Wales)
·      Creating a place where you can share your views and meet with others – through a Local Tourism Forum that will meet twice a year and share updates/new in between. 
"If you want to benefit from what’s happening in the local tourism scene, make sure you’re part of the conversation by signing up to our mail list," said Cllr Edwards.

"We can't reach everyone, but you can! Please share this message with anyone else you think would be interested so that they can join in too."
