Tourism policy and planning at a National and State level provides a framework for tourism development and management at a destination or local / regional level. Strategic planning for tourism at a destination level must align and integrate with national and state policy and plans as well as local planning frameworks.

 

As identified in the ‘Local Government Pathways to Sustainable Tourism’ toolkit developed by the Sustainable Tourism Cooperative Research Centre, the development of a regional governance map can assist in understanding the tourism planning framework in which a destination operates.

An example of a governance map is provided below.

Planning for tourism in a destination must not only integrate with National and State tourism strategies and policies but also consider other relevant plans such as economic development, infrastructure, environment, sport and recreation and transport. For further information on the planning environment in which tourism operates please see the section on Statutory and Planning Environment.
