This is the “right” way to develop a project. We have asked the Highland Council to create a sustainable tourism area across the North of Scotland. They said “no” because they would have to pay for it. Not the promoter, but someone else, just like the community consultation. It’s not happening then, but we will have a conference about Sustainable Development and Tourism on 17th July in Tongue… watch this space.
The area in question is from Duncansby Head to John o Groats and 10 miles inland. We wanted to include three spurs off the route, but got no support whatsoever. If anyone can persuade them to cooperate and email us, that would be great. Email to tinadirving @ gmail.com (no spaces).
We planned on carrying out a survey of landowners commencing in February 2019 for a year but the Highland Council will not support that either. We have the database of landowners.
Rachel Carson was the first environmentalist. Read her book, the Silent Spring, available on Amazon. TDM Consultancy will shortly launch Rachel Carson Enterprises as a branch of TDM Consultancy, as assisted by the local Council in Northern Ireland. These guys KNOW about business. We will be launching the Spanish week (3-9 June) in January 2019, under the auspices of the Hispanic Society of Carrickfergus, another sustainable tourism project backed by one, but two, Councils. Competa Council have already taken on board the sustainable tourism concept. Lets hope the people in the north of Scotland do.
This is proposed for the North Highland Way. But the Highland Council said no.
There will be a sustainable tourism course on line after the seminar. Cost will be £80 to access.
