Recent Australian studies, at both the State and Federal levels into factors impacting on the Australian coastline have indicated that a lack of attention in the planning of holiday settlements has resulted in a range of social and environmental problems. Local concerns on the transformation of holiday settlements into satellite suburbs, have established a need for study into methods of holiday development. The purpose of this study is to provide a base for the planning of coastal holiday settlements in Tasmanian rural municipalities. This base is achieved through the study of existing holiday settlements, and analysis of the cultural influences. This is in order to create environments and compile a set of physical properties which are characteristic of these settlements. Finally the above analysis is worked into a practical example which demonstrates how physical controls can be applied. Whilst this study focuses specifically on coastal holiday settlements it is hoped that the process of this study could equally be applied to any discrete settlement.
