City’s Tourist Information Centre to Return Following Lib Dem Action

Norwich City Hall

A tourist information centre (TIC) for Norwich could be up and running ready for summer visitors following a successful Liberal Democrat budget amendment at city hall.
Lib Dem leader in Norwich, Cllr James Wright, who spearheaded the proposal said:

"There is a commitment to finance an options appraisal followed by up to £100,000 to deliver, with partners, a TIC somewhere in the city – it could operate from a market stall, City Hall, or another suitable venue.”

Tourism is one of Norfolk’s largest economic sectors and set to grow by 3.8% in the coming year. We cannot afford to miss out on this opportunity to promote the city’s wealth of leisure, culture, and heritage opportunities. This is an investment in the future of our city, creating many more jobs.

The previous TIC in the Forum closed in April 2021. It has been a long term aim of the Norwich Liberal Democrats to see the re-opening of a TIC for Norwich.

Lib Dem campaigner James Hawketts said:

"I am very hopeful that, thanks to action from our group on the city council, a TIC could be in operation by the summer. We are a fine city and we ought to promote ourselves much more effectively and in a more coordinated fashion than we are doing at the moment."
