Not in the North of Scotland. The below was sent to a number of public bodies and Dounreay.
Have a look at my web site at www.tinasfreelance.com.. I have just sent David Swanson an email asking him if he would support the idea of a sustainable tourism destination for Caithness and Sutherland. As usual, I am afraid, I have to do all of the coordination if this route is to happen. I know there are people out there who think I will not succeed. I will as will the many supporters of this project. The below is what I have just sent to David in response to an email I sent to him only yesterday. Some people (and they will know who they are) have not responded to my request for a sustainable tourism area. I know that Ian Mitchell and David MacKay are doing their best, but I had hoped that Colin would have replied. After all, he was so helpful when we were putting in the abortive bid for the toilets at Dunnet Head. We couldn’t get them, as the total project cost had to be over £71,000. Please… for toilets. This is not THCs fault, but that of the Scottish Government, and I am about to find out who made this ridiculous assertion. Everyone on this list knows what a good researcher I am.
Thank you for this. Much appreciated.
Rest assured that the project will proceed.. but only if people work together which seems to be an impossibility. Have a look at my web site www.tinasfreelance.com – Competa in Spain has already embraced Green Tourism as a destination, thanks to me. This was joint working with myself, the town hall, the local people and the transport companies to improve links to the coast. Portadown will be next, as they also know how to work together. Caithness and Sutherland will, bizarrely, be last, even though I have been working on this project for 10 years.
Competa will be nominated as one of the top 100 sustainable tourism destinations. However, as HIE don’t want my expertise, unless it’s free, and THC are so difficult, Portadown will be the second place to achieve recognition.
It is thanks to me that Easyways was introduced to the Way, but there was no recognition of my work in his report. Never mind, we will get there, and I would hope, that, as a result of this you could contact Colin as requested in your usual efficient manner.”
Hopefully we can get some much needed clarity and joint working, notwithstanding that HIE only interested in the rocket idea, and not sustainable tourism.
People know who they are from whom I await their replies.
