This conclusion presents some closing thoughts on concepts discussed in the preceding chapters of this book. The book explores the different theoretical concepts, positions and frameworks along the way. It presents various alternative explanations and interrogated different aspects of tourism planning and policy in such a way that it has become increasingly apparent that there is no single explanation, no one approach to understanding issues and events. The book also presents longitudinal study of the development of the Christchurch tramway, Pearce found that the drivers of the tramway's development cannot be convincingly seen as a concerted or even unconscious response to globalisation; local not global forces, in the form of an enduring coalition of interests operating outside traditional local government processes, drove the process. Grybovych, Hafermann and Mazzoni described an innovative, deliberative planning process associated with the release and rezoning of forest lands on Vancouver Island, British Columbia.
