Integrated Strategy 2018 - 2030

The Integrated Strategy for Tourism, Regeneration and Economic Development presents a coherent vision for the pursuit of prosperity in the Borough of Ards and North Down. It responds to the vision and outcomes of the Community Plan for the area and is to be used as the common point of reference for all those contributing to the growth of our economy, the welcoming of visitors and the improvement of our places, both urban and rural.

The strategy was researched and developed through a highly collaborative process involving stakeholders from the public, private and community sectors. It is built on an evidence base that identifies the key assets of the Borough, as well as economic and environmental challenges faced at local and regional level. While uncertainties continue in the wider political and economic context, this strategy presents a confident and ambitious plan for the future.
