Bournemouth, Christchurch & Poole Hotel & Visitor Accommodation Research

Bournemouth, Christchurch & Poole Council has commissioned us to undertake various strands of research to help inform the hotel and visitor accommodation planning policies in the Council’s new Local Plan, currently in preparation. We will be looking at the prospects for post-COVID recovery in the area’s hotel and visitor accommodation market; preparing projections for future hotel demand to provide an indication of the number of new hotel rooms that the market might deliver over the Plan period; assessing available hotel sites and pipeline hotel projects and proposals; researching hotel company interest in bringing forward new hotels in the area; and looking at what is happening in other UK resorts in terms of hotel and visitor accommodation development.
