Dartmouth Town Council has launched a project to open up the town for visitors as the Covid-19 lock-down eases. Dartmouth Town Councillor Cathy Campos is leading the project to open up the town and has asked businesses to provide information on their opening plans. This will help both locals and visitors to enjoy our facilities whilst complying with the governments guidance on dealing with the virus.
Cathy has assembled a large team which includes Town Councillors, District Councillors, key stakeholders from Dartmouth Visitor Center and Visit South Devon (who look after the Discover Dartmouth website), together with representatives from the harbour authority and various business sectors in the town. Dartmouth Business News is helping to play a part in the lifting of the Covid lock-down in Dartmouth by keeping business informed.
As a part of this project we are establishing a central information source on the Dartmouth Town Council website. You can locate this information by clicking on the shield to take you into the DTC website.
All of the businesses in Dartmouth are going to be asked to provide information on when they are opening, what social distancing measures they will have in place and any other services they are offering while the restrictions apply.
We would urge all businesses to provide this information urgently so we can get the message out that Dartmouth is
SAFE, WELCOMING and READY FOR (responsible) VISITORS
At the same time this group is working on a marketing campaign to relaunch Dartmouth as the destination of choice for visitors to the West Country. As the lock-down lifts we must tread the difficult path between welcoming visitors back to the town in order to get our economy back on track, and at the same time ensuring our residents and visitors are safe from infection. This will not be easy but with positive support from everyone in the town we can do this.
