Multiple Owned Coasts: Development & Access

by Scott W. Creasy, Old Dominion Univ, Norfolk, VA, USA,

Document Type: Proceeding Paper

Part of: Coastal Zone '85


A fifteen mile stretch of coast near the Virginia-North Carolina border is currently undergoing a dilemma associated with development and public access. This region offers an excellent study area for the effects of multiple owned coastal areas on development and public access policy. The ownership pattern offers a series of microcosms which vary widely in their development and public access policies. Each separate area is currently in a different stage of development, and each also has a different policy concerning beach access by the general public.
