Land Use Planning for Sustainable Development of Coastal Regions

Areti Kotsoni, Despina Dimelli, Lemonia Ragia

Abstract

The current paper will focus on the coastal zone of Georgioupoli and its vulnerability as a result of the lack of spatial planning. The case study is selected because it concentrates the characteristics of a typical coastal touristic zone, which faces rapid intense unplanned touristic expansion. The examined zone has been diachronically influenced by the liberalization of construction regulations, an unqualified private sector emerged, hastily developing construction mostly without government oversight and without building permits. We present a concept for planning sustainable development in coastal regions.
