A ‘tourism tax’ to help protect Teignbridge’s coastal areas and make sure facilities keep pace with high visitor numbers could be introduced in time for this summer.
The voluntary donation which would help fund conservation and tourism related projects, would apply to hotels, holiday parks, B&Bs and Airbnbs within one mile of the coastline.
Teignbridge, which has beaches at Shaldon, Teignmouth, Dawlish and Dawlish Warren, attracts thousands of visitors each year.
If you visit France, Italy, Germany you have to pay tourist tax as you do in New Zealand and many other countries around the world so why not here.
In america some states execute criminals so why not here.....your ststement does not stand up just because other countries do it does not mean we have to follow suit!!!!. The labotomy dems are trying their best to screw teignbridge into the ground with false promises and hair-brained schemes. Why do never hear the voices of the independent councilers on the teignbridge commitee rather than hooky and ex conservate councillors still got the hump about being kicked out.
Its about time they spent the money they already claw off hard working people on the essentials. Instead of large pay packets, pension top ups and expenses and newton abbot town centre.
