Abstract: This paper has presented some important information about perceived constraints to the enactment and effective implementation of development management measures to reduce coastal storm hazards. It suggests reasons why development management is not used in more coastal localities, and where it is used, why it is often not enforced or effectively implemented. While some influences, such as the general conservative atmosphere prevalent in many coastal locales, are beyond adjustment in the short-term, other factors such as the lack of politically supportive groups may be more open to short term enhancement.
