The Swinden Quarry is a source of both visual and environmental pollution. Measures have been put in place to minimise this and the long-term restoration of the site is also being considered. Tourists can cause problems for local farmers and other land users. Some areas suffer from overcrowding during the tourist season and the related issues of traffic build up and pollution. It is part of the National Park Management Plan to consider different users and apply measures to resolve conflict.
Debate land-use conflict. Discuss the aims of a national park and its pros and cons. Consider the distinct groups who either live in or visit the national park and create venn diagrams showing where there are shared opinions and uses and where there is conflict. Look at park plans to see how different groups are accommodated in a real life case study.
