Abstract: Modern requirements for control and development of the coastal zone are best fulfilled through ad hoc initiatives towards coordination between authorities and professionals, based on truly manifested involvement and tailored to the specific objectives. At the same time it is also recognised that modern approaches to coastal protection and planning i. e. large scale beach nourishment projects may necessitate certain adjustments in existing legislation. The integrated activities have been named Coast Erosion Management to indicate the level of planning which is coordination, the multidisciplinary process to be physical planning/engineering and the focal point for many use conflicts to be erosion, although the Copenhagen Beach Park situation serves to present an interesting case of accretion. This paper discusses the management program.
