Abstract

This paper focuses on recreation demand, specifically at the results and policy implications of the household survey carried out in 1994/1995. It is pertinent to reflect that the 'Recreation 2000' policy initiative was devised in response to a previous household survey of recreation in 1983 (Countryside Commission, 1987). However, the anglicised context and consequential raft of policies adopted across the UK failed to take into account any regional differences in public attitudes and behaviour, particularly within a Welsh context. The SWRRI household survey addressed such concerns by focusing on a region with a distinct geographic and recreation identity and relevance.
