Introduction

AIM For my GCSE Coursework, I have chosen the topic of Tourism. The aim of my project is to find out the whether tourism has any: i) environmental impacts, ii) Economic impacts, or iii) Social impacts on Caerleon. ANALYSIS Fosse lane had the most amount of litter out of all five areas. Fosse Lane is situated next to the Roman Barracks so the litter could have been caused by tourists. On the other hand Caerleon School is also situated on the end of Fosse Lane, so the most likely explanation is that the litter has been caused by school children, as it is a popular lane for them to walk amongst. The only area that comes close is the Bull Inn. The Bull is situated in the High street of Caerleon and is not often walked among with the tourists as there is no main tourist features or landmarks their. Residents and members of Caerleon go around that area as there are local shops and the Bull is a local pub, popular with the locals. ...read more.

Conclusion

The Broadwalk is a residential area, chosen to see if there is a difference between results from a tourist area. Data was collected on a Friday morning and was collected using the same methods in each of the five areas. Data was collected using the following methods: - 1. Litter survey - to show if tourism has an effect on amounts/type of litter. An area of 15 meters by 2 meters was randomly measured in each of the areas before counting. 2. Traffic count - to see if there are different levels of pollution (noise and air). We counted every vehicle that passed and tallied the amount and type. 3. Environmental evaluation survey - to evaluate each area and to compare areas. I measured my responses to each of the areas. 4. Human impact survey - to assess how much of an impact humans have had on each site. I also used a questionnaire to find out how much of an impact tourism has on Caerleon and the persons life and a shopkeepers questionnaire to find out whether tourism had an effect on the economy of Caerleon. ...read more.
