12 MPCS report - APPROACH Initial briefing and tour Review of background information and existing reports Stakeholder consultation within structured framework Review of options Consultation workshop with stakeholders Draft and test conclusions and recommendations

13 MPCS Report - RECOMMENDATIONS The National Trust should consider a core and satellite development with a new eco-friendly visitor centre and management facilities at Hindhead with specialist offerings at outlying locations. The proposed development should aim for a moderate increase in visitor numbers (say 50%), targeting a range of local and sub- regional niche markets rather than the mass tourism market. Hindhead Together should commission a feasibility study into the case for “Hindhead Development Trust”?
