Cotswold District Council Tourism is Going Green
Going Green is not as costly as you all imagine. Sustainable Tourism is a winning strategy for all tourism providers and helps attract tourists to the area. Taking action now will help ensure we are all ready for the challenges of the future.
We want to encourage visitors to the Cotswolds to walk, cycle, use public transport and try other methods of transport whilst here.
Over the coming year we will be working with local providers to show guests what they can do within the local area they are staying and aim to provide local itineraries.
There are other ways businesses, residents and tourists can take measures to protect our future.
