Report of the Director of Major Projects.
Members received a report of the Director of Major Projects relative to the City Information Centre Annual Report which outlined the latest position of the City Information Centre (CIC).
Members expressed concern regarding the circumstances of the CIC, which had been heavily impacted by COVID-19. The Director noted factors such as lack of tourists, the Foreign Exchange moving out, decline in leaflet-rack rentals, and no longer being permitted to sell tickets to attractions due to track-and-trace measures. The Director emphasised the importance of the CIC as a resource for tourism and the significant role it may play in recovery, but that the CIC was struggling due to reliance on commercial income.
RESOLVED, that – the report be received and its contents noted.
