Payback time for Snowdonia?
Bookmark and Share
The possibility of those who like to go walking in Snowdonia being encouraged to join a gifting scheme is to be discussed by the national park authority's decision makers this week.

Tomorrow (October 13th) will see a meeting held at the Plas Tan y Bwlch study centre, where discussion will centre on whether and how the programme might operate.

Such a 'payback' scheme already exists in the Lake District via Nurture Lakeland, with goods and services such as retail discount initiatives being linked to voluntary giving by the public.

The money could be used for conservation schemes and other projects by the national park authority.

Nurture Lakeland has 340 local businesses involved in the scheme and it carries out work varying from research into the impacts of tourism to training on how to make this activity more sustainable.

It also helps fund projects such as footpath repair charity Fix the Fells.
