Promoting Tourism

To help support tourism, we will provide a minimum of £17 million to promote the North York Moors National Park and the surrounding area.

We provided funding of £600,000 in 2017 to promote the North York Moors National Park and the surrounding area, which will help businesses in the visitor economy. This included a contribution of £50,000 to help tourism businesses develop new products and services.

Case Studies

  • Ladybird Cleaning Company - Linda Knight, from Scarborough, set up Ladybird Cleaning Company to provide cleaning services at the Woodsmith Mine offices. She employs 17 local people, a figure which is expected to increase as the company’s footprint expands.
  • Premier Modular based in Driffield, East Yorkshire, were appointed to provide the site office space and welfare units.
  • CFB Risk Management the commercial arm of Cleveland Fire Brigade, provide 24hr security and emergency management services at all Sirius construction sites.

We have spent £100 million on sourcing goods and services from businesses in Tees Valley and North Yorkshire, including everything from logistics and construction to security and cleaning services. Supply chain expenditure will increase exponentially as the Project is delivered, creating more jobs and investment in the local area.
