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.
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.
