Meredith was initially engaged by Council to prepare the Eurobodalla DMP 2011 to 2020. Internal staffing and resourcing changes within Council from 2011 to 2015 had resulted in parts of the DMP not being implemented.
Meredith led the development of the Kur-ring-gai Destination Management Plan 2017 to 2020 that included working collaboratively with an urban planner.
Meredith Wray is a leading regional tourism expert who works with governments, industry and communities across Australia to influence the sustainable development, management and marketing of tourism. Her planning approach is based on evidence-based thinking and meaningful stakeholder engagement to create realistic action-oriented plans to sustainably grow, develop and promote visitor economies so that they can compete, innovate and prosper over the long-term.
Destination Southern NSW engaged Meredith to undertake the development of an integrated suite of strategic tourism development documents across five local government areas. A key strength of Meredith’s was the commitment to evidence-based decision making to inform strategy and the commitment to stakeholder engagement throughout the process.
