What is the law (if there is one) regarding cycling on non-Bridleway paths?
Andy Clee: Plastic Free North Devon
29:46
New demographic of visitors?
Coral Smith - DWT

Really good point about positive messaging rather than don’t!
lews
41:30
Great messaging! Can we adapt it (only easily adaptable materials, probably not videos etc) to Devon this summer?
Kirstie Pritchard
42:47
Hi Sally, you mentioned govt funding to support VM - do you have any further info on this you can share. Would like to check the Devon group is tapped into this is relevant
Amelia Davies SEDHRP
43:01
Was the # you are using #respectprotectenjoy? We could use that for our social media to spread the campaign into south east Devon. Amelia (south east Devon habitat regulations partnership)
Andy Clee: Plastic Free North Devon
44:24
Plastic free north Devon are also running (and expanding) a #protectourplayground campaign which could be of use
Jenny Carey-Wood
44:53
is the Dorset beach App being used in the AONB or just the main urban beaches?
Kirstie Pritchard
44:53
#RespectProtectEnjoy is linked to central gov messages and revamped Countryside Code: https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/the-countryside-code
Amelia Davies SEDHRP
45:57
Brilliant thank you! I will link them into future social media posts
Nigel Mortimer - South Devon AONB Estuaries Partnership
50:50
Talking to coastal colleagues around the country, these are common issues nationally - with our positive need for well being, clean water, etc., shame there isn't more of a national awareness push (beyond the C'side Code revamp)?
Andy Clee: Plastic Free North Devon
53:37
Could your model be used to identify opportunities for developing new habitat areas etc that could be developed (wilding, beaver intro etc) as new areas of opportunity?
Kirstie Pritchard
54:01
Hi Nigel - I'll get more info on Monday but I think there is a central govt group looking at safe reopening of the sector. What i'm not sure about is how much of a focus is on mitigating harm to the env and how much is about supporting local businesses and economy and protecting health
Kirstie Pritchard
54:42
But through the Devon wide group there is an opportunity to feed messages in to the central govt group
Andy Clee: Plastic Free North Devon
55:17
Maybe we should push for a regional message - this is an issue for most of th SW
Tim
57:26
Hi Andy, yes we think it has the potential for that, as part of a wider conversation about regional tourism management. We are currently thinking about next steps and welcome thoughts on whether this tool/ method is useful.

The Coastal Partnerships Network is set up to support national connectivity for this kind of work, linked through local-place based Coastal Partnerships. The Coastal based Approach, akin to the Catchment based Approach may also help to facilitate this kind of joined up approach nationally.
Neil Harris (SE Devon Habitat Regulations P'ship)
01:00:47
Just wondering what, specifically, is considered as sustainable tourism? Does it relate to the type of accommodation/venue to be developed or to implementation of visitor management methods? Both, perhaps?
lews
01:02:27
In relation to sustainable tourism, I was going to ask if there has been any consideration given to human carrying capacity at the coast. WWF Germany have been doing this kind of work as part of another Interreg project on sustainable tourism
lews
01:04:52
Would the Innovative Resilience Fund be appropriate to investigating funding models for this work?
Tim
01:05:27
This is a link to a report we wrote on this: https://www.bcht.eu/results.html
Tim
01:07:37
Hi Lews, thank you for that link to Coastal Partnership - and to the Catchment based approach
Andy Clee: Plastic Free North Devon
01:10:37
Coherent messaging is essential
Tim
01:11:04
re. the good question on definition sustainable tourism - we developed 3 scenarios before Covid, the sustainable tourism scenario was about custodianship and stewardship - so more on the good visitor management side, than accommodation/ venue types.
Bill.Horner
01:11:44
Must head off. Thanks for the presentations.
Sally King
01:13:18
I'll speak to Dorset Council about sharing of resources and will get back to Steve who can then share with you, if that's ok.
Andy Clee: Plastic Free North Devon
01:13:29
We've got a short term challenge - dealing with our current situation, but we also need to develop the vision of how all this will look in 5-10 years time
Tim
01:13:52
Totally agree Andy
Nigel Mortimer - South Devon AONB Estuaries Partnership
01:15:10
I think there are some important concepts that our visitors need 'to get' (& some locals) - many of these issues are cumulative impacts - we do need to sweat some of the small stuff. Another is 'biosecurity' and visitors and their equipment as INNS vectors. Personally, I don't feel that wildlife disturbance is being pushed enough - particularly on the coast
Andy Clee: Plastic Free North Devon
01:17:28
Make it easy for people to 'do the right thing'
lews
01:22:49
Agree re regional messaging. Can we use Dorset's 5 visitor promises and associated branding?
Kirstie Pritchard
01:23:34
apparently 40k downloaded the beach app - but no data on what the impact on the beaches themselves were
Jenny Carey-Wood
01:26:04
Steve - can you share a list of attendees and email contact?
Kirstie Pritchard
01:26:30
Thanks very much - really great presentations
Andy Clee: Plastic Free North Devon
01:26:39
