For some time Sevenoaks Town Council has been proud to state that its intervention with the Stag not only enabled a Theatre and Cinema to continue to be provided in the town but also through the visitors to the facility support the economic and tourist benefits for Sevenoaks. The Town Council has commissioned an independent economic impact assessment [viewable here] to review this a copy of which was considered at the Community Infrastructure Committee.
The Executive Summary of the Report states:
Cllr Richard Parry stated: “The Council welcomed the report that demonstrated the valuable contribution the Stag made towards visitor numbers to the town and the local economy. In particular it was noted that approximately 50% of visitors to the Stag came from outside the town. The Council were also of the opinion that the report demonstrated the benefit of the brave decision made by the Town Council in 2008 to take over the facility”.
