Falkirk Council have been working closely with the Tourism Businesses within the Falkirk area and many of the businesses had been involved in the development of the Falkirk Area Tourism Strategy.

The key targets identified within the Strategy for the Falkirk area are:

  • To increase visitor expenditure in the Falkirk area by 20% over the next five years to 2020
  • To increase overnight visitor accommodation (serviced bedrooms and self catering units) in the Falkirk area by 20% over the next five years to 2020.
  • To develop a Falkirk Tourism Partnership to take ownership of, to review and to implement the strategy.

The Falkirk Area Tourism Partnership will have a focus on promoting the Falkirk area for tourism and encouraging businesses in the area to work together in a more proactive manner. Having been formally established in 2017 and receiving Falkirk Council committee approval in January 2018 the following businesses are represented within the Tourism Partnership

The Leapark Hotel,  Xtreme Karting, Carr’s Hill Campsite, The Helix/Falkirk Community Trust, Wee Heroes, Vintage VW Campers and Falkirk Council  for the provision of Secretariat.

A number of other local tourism businesses have said they are keen to be involved and the aim is to have partnership which will provide representation from all sectors across the Falkirk area.
