For a greater illustration of EPCI categorized stations
Anett’s doc is predicated on present developments in tourism (quick stays and final minute reservations, confidence in evaluations and publicity, evolution in direction of extra accountable tourism, sluggish tourism, and many others.), but in addition on the outcomes of the “Observatory of Tomorrow’s Tourism” introduced on the congress affiliation final June, which resulted in an Ifop survey of the expectations of elected officers and the French carried out with the assistance of the Banque des Territoires (see our article on June 29, 2021).
Anett’s ten proposals mix professional domo advocacy, consensus proposals discovered amongst a number of different tourism stakeholders, and extra authentic suggestions. The primary is, in fact, pro-domo advocacy, as it’s about “selling categorized vacationer locations, facilities of excellence”, specifically by the implementation of long-term promotional actions and the recentralization measure of returning to classification by decree or ministerial decree, the duty shifted to prefects in April 2020. Furthermore, being a signatory to the classification ordinance for brand spanking new stations would most likely not have had a lot of an affect on the town’s valuation, even when Anett had beneficial holding an annual presentation ceremony for the brand new rankings.
This primary method additionally features a proposal for the governance and territorial group of tourism. Anett believes that the obligatory switch to municipalities of competence to advertise tourism is tantamount to “establishing a straitjacket [qui] stiffens an space that doesn’t enable itself to be constrained by any administrative layer arbitrarily predefined by this or that administration. “The affiliation subsequently requires” a greater separation of powers for elected station officers categorized as inter-municipal DGF inhabitants relatively than communal inhabitants. “
Lodging base and growth of tourism professions
Different recommendations are extra broadly shared and are largely according to the views of different gamers comparable to Alliance France Tourisme (see our article, October 27, 2021) or Areas of France (see our article, April 4, 2022). In addition they overlap with the assumptions of the “Plan of reconstruction and transformation in tourism”, introduced by Emmanuel Macron and the circumstances of which have been outlined by the Prime Minister (see our articles of June 3 and November 22, 2021). That is the case, for instance, within the case of the need to raised adapt the standard of the lodging supply to the expectations of vacationers (combat in opposition to chilly beds, assist in elevating requirements, facilitating resort transfers, together with the creation of “resort zones” prohibiting the change of use of buildings …).
This additionally applies to investments in rising attractiveness (opening grants to assist native investments for tasks “rising attractiveness”, higher inclusion of second houses within the DGF calculation …) or larger promotion of tourism professions (particularly by coaching, however irrespective of wage revaluation and profession enchancment). however not the duty of the neighborhood). Anett additionally recommends strengthening the motivation for innovation (digital instruments and many others) and selling tourism for all (creating a three-year college calendar, selling vacation vouchers, reviving social tourism, discovery actions and summer season camps …)
Seasonal staff, second houses and vacationer security
The opposite recommendations are extra particular. That is the case with the revival of hydrotherapy, according to the mission entrusted to Jean-Yves Gouttebel. That is additionally the case, and above all, with the proposal to “reside in vacationer areas in a sustainable method”. These embrace, specifically, a set of measures to enhance “housing for seasonal staff, a black level for vacationer areas”, inter alia, by allocating a sure proportion of housing in new buildings to accommodate seasonal staff, or reviewing housing help for the employees involved. With the intention to proceed to “reside in a sustainable method in vacationer areas,” Anett additionally proposes to revise the taxation of second houses in a extra favorable course, so long as “the second resident allows the upkeep of actions and jobs on the expense of the neighborhood.” zero internet artificialization) as offered for within the Local weather and Resilience Act of twenty-two August 2021. Anett notes “the necessity to modify measures to raised consider the range of vacationers’ territories and the difficulties they face”. “Actually, some territories are topic to totally different pressures, each climatic and geographic, which trigger a number of harm in some areas (floods, landslides, landslides, retraction of the shoreline, and many others.). Some municipalities additionally accumulate nuisances (air hall, and many others.) and the event areas are considerably lowered: lakes, coastal legislation areas, pure areas, protected areas, regional pure parks, water areas, and many others. – he explains. deprived: they’re good college students and contemplate themselves very restricted within the growth of their commune. The affiliation subsequently requires “adjusting the appliance of ZAN and leaving flexibility for tourism territories which can be extra constrained than others”.
Lastly, Anett dedicates a proposal to strengthening the protection of vacationers. Step one is to combat the theft and trafficking of individuals in opposition to vacationers, by rising the variety of cops (state and municipal) in locations with excessive visitors and rising the variety of video monitoring installations, but in addition by “offering a particular system in opposition to overseas prospects with excessive buying energy. who’re notably the topic of theft ”(which deserves an evidence). It additionally entails enhancing the deployment of CRS in vacationer areas (seashores and mountain resorts), enhancing security at main sporting or cultural occasions, and inspiring first assist coaching for volunteer firefighters.
