Senior manager at Eastbourne Borough Council Tracey McNulty is leaving after nearly five years heading up the tourism and leisure department.

Tracey has held responsibility for the town’s Grade II listed theatres, museums, seafront services, tourism development, leisure facilities and high profile events such as the annual Aegon International and Airbourne since her appointment as senior head of tourism and leisure in 2010.

Tracey has been instrumental in developing the town’s tourism, cultural and leisure offer, working closely with multiple partners in the town - resulting in the planned £35 million transformation of Devonshire Park as a thriving cultural, leisure and events destination, the transfer of the Towner to Trust, with a new executive director and David Dimbleby as chair, independent management teams running the Royal Hippodrome and Heritage Centre and funding agreed from the Lawn Tennis Association to revitalise park tennis with numerous clubs in the town taking part. She will shortly be taking up the role of head of cultural services for the City and County of Swansea. Tracey said, “I have loved working for and living in Eastbourne and enjoyed contributing to the many and varied tourism and leisure projects that help make this town such a brilliant place to live and visit.”
