Tourism on Grassington

Extracts from this document...


Introduction I am aiming to find out how tourism has affected a honey pot such as Grassington. A honey pot is a popular tourist of special interests that appeals to and tourists in large numbers. Generally nice scenery, good facilities or climate & culture are major factors important to honey pots. At peak times they may become crowded and congested, suffering form noise and litter pollution. Grassington is in an English National Park. Map (A) shows the location of Grassington. There are thirteen national parks in England; law protects them all. They're owned by the landowners and protected by the local authorities. National parks are made so because of several important factors such as landforms, ecology or geology to name a few. The purpose of national parks is to preserve and enhance the natural wildlife, beauty and cultural heritage for future generations; they are protected from any future developments by English law. Another aim of the national park authorities is to help people enjoy and understand the special qualities of these parks. Grassington is found in North Yorkshire in the Pennine Uplands, in the Yorkshire dales national park. ...read more.


Environmental Impact 3. Paring in the town center 4. Footpath erosion We looked at land use to see how tourists had affected land use and the proportion of buildings for tourist or residential use. The environmental impact assessment is use to determine the impact of visitors on Grassington, using the effects of noise, litter and visual pollution as well as traffic congestion. The parking survey was to find out the effect of tourists and their vehicles in the town, such as extra car parks or security etcetera. The footpath erosion survey looked at the effects off tourists walking on footpaths we were there to measure and Asses the erosion caused and also sees if it varied in some areas and why. I have chosen to write up the following surveys: 1. Environmental Impact Assessment - I chose this, as it seems a good way of comparing one site to another and assessing the differences between them and finding out the causes of these differences. 2. Parking Survey - this seems a good way to assess how tourist and their cars have affected the local way of life and their surroundings. ...read more.


Town head In the town the centre are small and narrow, they are obviously only designed for local traffic. This could cause problems as it could cause congestion in the villager. Heavy god s vehicles or coaches, busses could cause further problems in the village. Residents may get annoyed with the visitor for several reasons, such as parking on grass verges and the increased conpetition for parking spaces. The survey will look at badly or illegally parked vehicles and will look at the use of designated car parks. Presentation of my results Foot path erosion survey To effectively demonstrate the level of erosion at the different sites on the footpath I am going to create an individual graph for each site. I am going to present the data in a scatter graph where the points a joined by smooth lines. However I am going to make the graph so that on the level of erosinon scale the level of erosion DECREASES as the scal goes UPWARDS. This will mean we will have a cut view of this section of path. Eg. To supplement this I will also produce another grapth for each tansect of the footpath, this grath will be to make accurate readings from the grapth. ?? ?? ?? ??
