TOURISM projects re­ceived a fund­ing boost of £2.4m last week.

Ken Skates, the Econ­omy Sec­re­tary, an­nounced that the money is be­ing of­fered to 26 projects across Wales that will im­prove the ex­pe­ri­ence visitors have in Wales.

The fund­ing has been made avail­able through the Tourism Amenity In­vest­ment Sup­port scheme (TAIS), aimed at pub­lic, third sec­tor and not-for-profit or­gan­i­sa­tions for in­vest­ment tar­get­ing small scale in­fra­struc­ture (vis­i­tor amenity) projects in the tourism sec­tor in Wales.

The project has re­ceived fund­ing through the Welsh Govern­ment Ru­ral Com­mu­ni­ties – Ru­ral De­vel­op­ment Pro­gramme 2014-2020, which is funded by the Euro­pean Agri­cul­tural Fund for Ru­ral De­vel­op­ment and the Welsh Govern­ment.

The fund­ing has been al­lo­cated to in­fra­struc­ture projects across Wales which will see im­prove­ments to vis­i­tor ameni­ties as well as prod­ucts which help de­velop qual­ity des­ti­na­tions.

The projects in­clude im­prove­ments to cy­cle paths; up­grades to ac­cess and fa­cil­i­ties at blue flag beaches; vis­i­tor park­ing; sig­nage and pub­lic con­ve­niences.
