Poundbury April 03 2014 Heritage Tourism, Ruralism, Communications and Business in a Broadband Age England Tourism Week

The Historic Towns Forum in conjunction with ASHTAV will be holding its second National Tourism Conference during England Tourism week on April 3 2014. This will focus on rural heritage and tourism issues and how Broadband provision affects this, among other topical issues such as communications, transport infrastructure and economic growth in rural historic settlements. The event will be VisitEngland supported and will include tours around Poundbury, the often controversial and fascinating housing development instigated by HTF Patron, HRH Prince Charles.  With the recent government announcement that a further £250m is to be allocated to provide superfast broadband to the U.K.’s hardest to reach rural areas this event will be especially relevant to those working with business in rural areas.
