Tourism Advisory Committee

Date commenced: 
4 February 2010
Date disbanded:

The Tourism Advisory Committee is an advisory committee of the Council and does not have executive power or authority to implement actions.

The role of the Tourism Advisory Committee is, independently of management, to report to Council and provide appropriate advice and recommendations on matters relevant to its constitution.

The purpose of the Tourism Advisory Committee is:

  • To progress the strategies and actions of the Byron Shire Tourism Management Plan.  
  • To advise Byron Shire Council in the sustainable development, marketing and management of tourism, including events and other cultural initiatives, representing the interests of both the tourism industry and resident communities across the Shire, with regard for the social, environmental and economic benefit of the Byron Shire community.
  • Foster links and engagement between Council, industry and community interests.
  • Work cooperatively with local, state and regional government departments and agencies, local tourism and business organisations, environmental stakeholder organisations and the community.
  • Act as a focal point (external reference point) and forum for tourism businesses, organisations and individuals involved in the tourism industry in the Byron Shire Council area.  
  • Be aware of industry trends and statistics across local, regional, domestic and international platforms.
  • To assist in the preparation of an annual report to Council, stakeholders and the community to report on the progress in the implementation of the strategies and actions of the Tourism Management Plan. This annual report will serve as a performance review of the groups’ effectiveness.
  • To advise on the preparation of an annual budget for adoption by Council.
  • To provide direction to the various sub-committees established by the Tourism Advisory Committee to work on individual areas.
  • To consider the reports prepared by sub-committees and refer appropriate policy and strategic direction to staff for their appropriate action, including formal submission to Council.
  • The Committee is to facilitate strategic policy development and implementation on a range of tourism issues within the Byron Shire Local Government area and to make recommendations to Council accordingly, within the context of the Tourism Management Plan.
