Yorkshire Dales National Park welcomes over eight million visitors every year, all of them attracted by its special qualities of natural beauty, wildlife, cultural heritage and by the recreational opportunities it offers.

Whilst tourism certainly benefits the local area in economic terms, the sheer volume of visitors does have an impact on the environment.

The landscape is not indestructible and issues such as traffic congestion, parking, tourism development, litter, footpath erosion, problems for farmers, disturbance for local people can all lead to problems for the National Park.

There is a growing concern that our enjoyment of the countryside today should not put at risk the enjoyment of others tomorrow and a desire to make sure that tourism is 'sustainable'.
