Celebrating 6000 years

Dorchester’ Heritage and Tourism Community agrees consultation on new tourism strategy.

The Dorchester Joint Heritage Committee is inviting Dorchester residents and visitors to comment on its Heritage Tourism Strategy. The strategy was agreed for draft consultation at its meeting on Tuesday 21st July.

Dorchester benefits from over 6000 years of history and is seeing significant investment in heritage assets in the north of the town. Yet the town’s visitor offer remains hidden from prospective visitors, and its heritage has not attracted visitors for the economic benefit of the town. As well as addressing the lack of awareness of the towns offer amongst visitors to the area, the strategy proposes developing new quality visitor experiences, working with the heritage attractions and tourism businesses in the town.

Chairman of the Dorchester Joint Heritage Committee Cllr Gareth Jones told KeeP 106″ The strategy has been a long-term ambition of the town council, featuring in its corporate plan since 2015. I would encourage anyone interested in the celebration of Dorchester’s history and heritage to take part in the consultation”

To take part please see the strategy and consultation documents on the Heritage Tourism page of the Dorchester Town Council website
