The busy summer for Wales’ Visitor Economy has shown the crucial importance of tourism infrastructure in delivering a quality experience for visitors.

To help organisations plan ahead for future years I launched the Brilliant Basics capital fund to support public, third sector and not for profit organisations to deliver basic small scale tourism infrastructure improvements. 

Twenty six projects have been successful in their funding applications for the £2.4 million fund for 2021-2022. 

Small scale tourism infrastructure projects were supported from local authorities, national parks and the third sector, all helping to ensure that visitors to Wales have a positive and memorable experience throughout their stay.

The projects include electric vehicle charging points, improved toilet and car parking facilities, accessible Changing Places facilities and improved signage and interpretation panels.
