Summary
No mention of 'informal' recreation or the benefit public rights of way bring to tourism.
Comment

Good to see Downs Link, very popular recreational bridleway route, available to all non-motorised users (walkers, cyclists, horse riders) mentioned in paragraph 5.25. 'Informal' recreation is a major contributor to the rural economy, bringing many tourists to the District, however, there is no mention of this, or the part public rights of way play in tourism in the Policy or preceding paragraphs.

Proposed Change Add wording to acknowledge the benefit 'informal' recreation and the public rights of way network bring to tourism in Policy or preceding paragraphs.
