Marine Leisure Sector Development, NW England

Marine Leisure Sector Development, NW England

We were retained by the North West Regional Development Agency to advise on development of the marine leisure sector. This involved an analysis of the potential for the industry to grow in the region. It resulted in setting up an industry led body called Sail NW, a not for profit company limited by guarantee. We prepared an action plan,  and Sir Robin Knox-Johnston launched the company at the 2005 London Boat Show.

The NW RDA withdrew its funding for the initiative causing it to come to an early close, however the potential identified for the industry is being realised. Marinas are full and expanding, and new facilities are planned as part of regeneration projects in Barrow and Workington.
