Since the concept of sustainability and its cousin sustainable development was made popular by the researches and publication in this fields, it has been applied to many areas of economic development and natural resources management. Tourism, particularly that which is based upon a region's natural and cultural heritage, contains both the promises of a better quality of life and protection of region'a heritage, as well as numerous pitfalls. In this contexts, this study attempted to examine the approaches of sustainable tourism development model of based upon residents' attitudes for regional development and LAC(limits of acceptable change) characteries.
This study used 3 phases of the LAC which has 9 phases. A total of 415 questionaries were completed by residents of Gapyeong-County, Gyeonggi-Province. And this study used the ROS(recreation opportunity spectrum) rate establishments to establish rates and asked the people in order to analyze the hypothesis following the model of it. And with these data was analyzed by factor, ANOVA and regression analysis and more.
The finding of this study are ;
First, The ROS rate of the location is Semi-primitive locations 71.1%, Natural locations 15.5%, Agricultural locations 10.7% but the Urban locations were only 2.8%.
Second, the attitude of the regional people towards tourism and tourism development by regional ROS rates was more agreed by the Semi-primitive and Urban locations than the Natural and Agricultural.
Third, According to the regional ROS rates, the location society satisfaction rates were only different in leisure activities, Semi-primitive locations, Natural locations, and Agricultural locations were more satisfying than Urban locations.
Fourth, ROS rates of location's desirable tourism development form were holding back development so except that Semi-primitive locations is the mind of aggressive development reparation or hoping for development because of the attachment of the location society, the Urban locations prefer negative development or nature focus tourism development more than the Natural locations and the Agricultural location.
Fifth, For the sustainable tourism development the earth ROS rates had a different method for a desirable tourism development form because it is judged that people of the location and tourism development want more. But according to the satisfaction of the local society, the location's desirable tourism development form doesn't change much.
Sixth, the effect of the backing towards the location's new tourism development are which is the desirable tourism development form, passive development are affirmative and aggressive development effects negatively.
