Tourism Small Grants 2018/2019


The Tourism Development Unit of Lisburn & Castlereagh City Council has traditionally made payment and/or provided assistance to groups that have organised events in the Lisburn & Castlereagh City Council area and have shown measurable tourism benefits for the area.

The Tourism Development Unit will give consideration to financially supporting events that can provide evidence of supporting the following:

  1. Attraction of out-of-state visitors and participants to the Lisburn & Castlereagh City Council area.
  2. Attraction of domestic visitors and participants to the Lisburn & Castlereagh City Council area.
  3. Generation of ‘bed-nights’ in the Lisburn & Castlereagh City area.
  4. Generation of positive publicity for the Lisburn & Castlereagh City Council area strengthening the Lisburn & Castlereagh City Council area credibility as a tourist and visitor destination.
  5. Attraction of positive media coverage outside the Lisburn & Castlereagh City Council area.  
  6. Requires Lisburn & Castlereagh City Council assistance to ensure the overall success of the event.            

Where the main purpose of an event is to raise money for a charity and/or charities, financial assistance will not normally be provided by Lisburn & Castlereagh City Council.
 

Lisburn & Castlereagh City Council would encourage early application for support by offering to feature the event in our promotional material where appropriate.  All applications will be treated fairly and a scoring matrix used to evaluate them.
