Managing the Public 2000-2009

How to Use this Page. #

These are not guidebooks about which path to follow or what hills to climb, these are books that cover the management and development of outdoor access.

Publications are grouped by subject area and then by decade.

Each entry follows the same layout and is organised thus:

Author, (Year of publication), Title, Publisher, followed by a paragraph about the book. This may be the advertising paragraph from the book cover or a short review.

Where possible a weblink is included, but some of the publications are not available online so you will need to use your favourite bookseller to get a copy. Some are no longer in print so you may need to go to a real bricks and mortar library to find a copy.

The publication is based upon work carried out in 2001 and 2002 on phase one of the development of a Visitor Management System by David Masters, Peter Scott and Graham Barrow which resulted in the production of a discussion report, outlining proposals for a Sustainable Visitor Management System.
