A new "visitor payback" project could see tourists contribute towards North Wales environmental projects under plans mooted by Tourism Partnership North Wales (TPNW).

The organisation, which is responsible for the strategic development of the region's tourism industry, said the scheme would be based on a similar initiative launched in the Lake District in 1993. Under TPNW's plans, visitors to North Wales will be asked to pay an extra amount in addition to their hotel bill or attraction admission fee - thought to be around £1.

TPNW regional strategy director Dewi Davies said: "We have eight million staying visitors a year in North Wales and 17 million day visitors. If each of those contributed only £1 each that would give us a very sustainable pot indeed." Conwy County Borough Council's portfolio holder for communities, Goronwy Edwards, added: "It really seems to work well in the Lake District and I feel it is something well worth exploring. There could be real benefits if hotels, caravan park owners and others could be persuaded to raise the levy."
