    Abstract

    Much of the literature on community attitudes to tourism development relates to rural areas in developing countries while urban environments in developed countries and pre-development scenarios have been neglected. The paper is concerned with resident attitudes to tourism development proposals and their perceived impacts in the Worsley area of the city of Salford, England. The results show that the community is divided on the issue of support for tourism development based on the perceived benefi ts and costs of tourism and that the anticipated negative environmental consequences are signifi cantly more infl uential than positive economic or social impacts. The theoretical contribution and practical implications of the fi ndings are discussed.
