Penrith Hotel Futures Study

We have just been awarded a contract by Eden District Council to undertake a study of the potential for hotel development in Penrith. The Council is currently looking at options for the disposal of its Mansion House offices in the town centre, including possibly for a hotel conversion, and requires evidence of whether there could be potential for a new hotel in the town to help inform its deliberations.   

Isle of Man Accommodation Investment Programme

Andrew is continuing to work with Visit Isle of Man to support the development and implementation of an Accommodation Investment Programme for the island. He is currently undertaking work to model the future requirement for accommodation development on the island in order to achieve Visit Isle of Man’s target of 500,000 visitors to the island by 2030. He is also helping with the setting up a political level Accommodation Investment Board to help drive forward a strong vision and strategy for accommodation development on the island, secure the necessary resources and government financial incentives to accelerate accommodation development, and help remove the barriers to accommodation projects being progressed on the island, particularly in terms of planning policy and decisions.
