Is anything really needed here? (Expand pics)
Opportunity to meet Mournes Heritage Trust.
Are you interested in what is happening in the Mournes? Are you interested in talking to the people in charge of developments? Are there changes that you would like to see in the general style or at specific sites? Perhaps you would like to discuss consultation methods?

Well here is your chance. Matt Bushby (Countryside Services Manager) of Mournes Heritage Trust is
prepared and willing to meet "on site to go over pathwork both past and planned as soon as possible". I have no doubt he would discuss other issues apart from pathworks. I have no doubt he is quite willing to discuss whether there should be any development at all in some areas.

Please contact Peter Walker through the messaging system ( mountainviews.ie/messages/ ) to arrange a common time at which to meet.
His screen name is "Peter Walker" and I would like to thank him for helping on this one despite commitments elsewhere.

I did have a brief conversation with Matt recently. I put forward my views on the main specific area I know about, Slieve Binnian. Personally I wouldn't be at all happy about the granite staircase that has appeared there or plans to "improve" the rough track between the North Tor and the main top. I found that Matt was quite prepared to listen. Folks. Getting someone to listen isn't a given in the world of "official" development.

Many have expressed strong opinions on upland development over several months, powerfully and often humorously, however to cause any change in what is happening requires something more than that and here is an obvious opportunity. Waste this opportunity and people might draw the conclusion that you would prefer to talk rather than actually do anything.

To illustrate some of the practical issues, consider the photo, which was taken from the top of Slieve Binnian looking north. In the foreground to the left is an informal path. Does it really need to be changed? In the mid ground there are two paths from the North Tor going towards the main top. Are they sufficiently wide or spreading to justify replacement by a developed path?
