Henley-In-Arden Tourism Investigation

Extracts from this document...


Henley-In-Arden Introduction To The Investigation And Henley-In-Arden. This investigation is an intensive look at tourism in the village Henley-In-Arden. The main question is 'Should tourism be encouraged or restricted?' To find this information several things within the group had to be done. Certain people had to measure the pollution in the area. Questionnaires and opinion lines were used to find information from the residents of Henley-in-Arden. Tax discs were checked as it gives a brief idea of where the people are from. There are negative and positive aspects to tourism. Henley-In-Arden lies Southwest from the midlands, Northwest from Stratford-Upon-Avon and East-south from Redditch. Henley-In-Arden is near Stratford-Upon-Avon. Henley may be popular because people make short stops at Henley as its one of the closest villages and the famous birthplace of Shakespeare. All types of visitor engaged in tourism are described as visitors, a term that makes up the basic concept for the whole system of tourism statistics; the term visitor may be further subdivided into the same-day visitors and tourists as follows: visitors are defined as people who travel to a county rather than in which they have their usual residence but outside their usual environment for a period not exceeding 12 months and whose main purpose of the visit is other than the activity remunerated from within the place visited; same-day visitors are visitors who do not spend the night in a collective or private accommodation in the country visited; while tourists are visitors who stay in the country visited for at least one night. More than 75% of the town's work force is employed in the service industries (tourist-related employment, catering and financial services). Advantages of tourism: * Income introduced into local area. Capital is spent in local shops and in local facilities. * Tourism provides employment for local people and consequently sometimes prevents migration away from remote areas. * Increased interest in the area could lead to better protection of environment or other attracting features. ...read more.

The intention is, that in partnership with Warwickshire Police, these cameras will: � Help to prevent and detect crime � Improve public safety � Reduce the fear of crime Vandalism and crime is common as expected in a lot of places. It gives more reason to install cameras when tourists arrive as crime and vandalism increases. The locals are safer due to this. The funds for the cameras and the associated control and command equipment were made available by Stratford on Avon District Council combined with substantial grant aid from The Home Office as part of Central Government's Crime Reduction Programme. Progress with CCTV This process began in Stratford upon Avon. There are now cameras covering the main shopping streets, car parks and known problem areas. The Stratford scheme proved to be tremendously valuable resource in the battle against crime and encouraged by this success CCTV coverage was extended to Studley and then to Alcester The results (look below) from all towns continue to be very encouraging and have led to Stratford on Avon District Council's latest project, to extend CCTV coverage to Shipston on Stour and Southam and to extend the coverage in Stratford upon Avon. The work installing the cameras is scheduled to be complete in late spring 2002. This method is sustainable in keeping Henley safe from criminals etc. It also improves the image of Henley, which invites furthermore tourists to increase Henley's income. ...read more.


There have been many changes e.g.: more roads for car owner's convenience and more buildings have been created as well. 3) Should tourism be encouraged/restricted in Henley...why? I think that Areas on the high street were perfectly pleasant but because there was a main-road running through them, they degraded quite heavily. But for the main area of Stratford, wherever the visitors go it is generally aesthetically pleasing. There is an abundance of flowers and historical buildings, which are clean and tidy primarily because there are tourists there, which in turn gives the council enough money to fund street sweepers and police, to keep graffiti, crime, vandalism and litter away from the tourists and surroundings. Certainly, the tourists have a positive impact on the areas they populate most. I think tourism in Henley should be encouraged because the image of Henley is made more pleasant due to the tourists and Henley is more popular for this reason. There are more jobs available for local residents, as there are more new shops and companies introduced into the area. I have concluded that tourism is good for Henley; in fact that it is the life-blood of Henley. Maybe tourists are rude,maybe tourists are inconsiderate to the people of Henley, but I know that I personally would rather have a job, a livelihood ,a high quality of living and tourists in the town that the opposite to that. They bring very few problems to Henley- one mentioned here, possibly the most drastic one was that you could not walk own the street because of the tourists. Instead of using this as a negative factor, I would consider this good. If this has a solution, it is pedestrianisation. If this were brought about, then it would benefit Henley's local economy hugely. One way is that the car would decrease in popularity because there were less convenient parking spaces near the shops. Instead people would use public transport, and this money could in turn be reinvested to benefit the isolated rural communities. ...read more.
