Tourism Pressure – A Planning Tool Would Help

The BBC news have looked at “Tourism Pressures: Five Places tackling Too Many Visitors”, where it seems that the sheer number of tourists are spoiling the destination they are going to visit. The governments and national parks authorities are trying different methods to reduce tourists and save the environment.  If ever there was a need for a planning tool for these organisations, it must be for these sites. They could monitor visitor numbers, work out peak visiting times and try ‘what if’ scenarios to determine the best solution. I hope they have something suitable available to them or these sites my suffer from unrepairable damage.
