Read Councillor Ian Stephens, Chair of the Local Government Association's Culture, Tourism and Sport Board, on the Culture, Media and Sport (CMS) Committee report on tourism.

A vibrant local sports scene improves public health, economic development and community cohesion. We are helping councils build a lasting legacy from the 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games.
We are helping councils tackle their challenges through:
- securing continued support for the Future Libraries programme
- helping councils to realise a 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games legacy that delivers wider benefits for the whole country
- supporting councils who are pioneering new and more efficient ways of delivering heritage services and share the lessons widely
- promoting digital inclusion and supporting the superfast broadband pilot areas.
