THE MOURNES, HERITAGE AND TRUST
The Mourne Heritage Trust has responded (as below) to my criticism of its construction work in the Mourne Mountains.
It explains its position and in order to give it authority, how it arrives at it.

The Mourne Heritage Trust is independent and according to its response, seeks project and financial support for its proposals. Having done so it then carries out the work it has formulated and proposed.
It does not advise that it is lobbied to carry out this work.
Therefore although it cannot proceed without agreement from its support bodies, the authority is vested by itself and in itself and the initiatives are ultimately its own.

Its work in the Mourne Mountains is unsightly, destructive and above all, unnecessary.

The Mourne Heritage Trust should not be allowed to carry out any more works of this nature.

>>>>Mourne Heritage Trust has read with interest the discussion stimulated by this post on recent path developments in the Mournes and appreciates the insights provided. In identifying the various recent works the Trust drew on scientific rese...arch and monitoring information before consulting on need with the relevant landowners, MHTís core and project funders, other relevant statutory bodies and various user representatives. Approaches used drew on best practice and expertise from other regions but importantly modified these to reflect Mourne conditions. Trust staff further consulted with user interests on techniques used, including machinery, and modified our plans as a result. We have held review meetings to reflect on lessons learned from, for example, the Binnian works to inform on-going and possible future approaches.
As a disparate group we have of course been unable to consult all users and thus welcome input, particularly those we have not reached but without excluding further comment from individuals and organisations we have previously engaged with. Views expressed in our consultations to date appear broadly reflective of the spectrum of opinions expressed in this Facebook discussion - in content if not precisely in tone. If any of the contributors to the discussion would like to speak directly to us we would be very happy to do so. Please contact the Trustís Countryside Office on (028) 417 65489 or, in the event of no-one being available at this location, our main office on (028) 437 24059.
We have previously posted information on path works on www.Mournelive.com and the Mournelive Facebook page and we hope to upload additional material in the near future. Please do consult these sources for further information on the path work and MHT structures and funding, including our annual report and accounts.
We hope this post is helpful and provides those with an interest in the path works with sufficient information to meet their requirements for further information and/or engagement.
