The Visit Northumberland board is representative of the visitor economy of Northumberland and is comprised of a maximum of 10 (including observers) with the right balance of sector knowledge, skills and experiences. The board will be responsible for approving the relevant strategy and implementation plans and achievement therein, they will also steer the development of the Destination Management Plan and the relevant action planning groups. They will also set performance targets for the operational team.
