Regions where recreation stay is common, face specific problems in different fields. At first one thinks about nuisance during periods of higher touristic activity, such as higher density of the traffic, increasing production of garbage, increasing demand for utilities… At this moment it is mainly a question of temporary recreational stay, but a growing group of what we could describe as permanent recreational residents is not really thought about. Neither has been reflected about the needs these permanent recreational residents will have to coop with in the near future. The largest group of these permanent recrecational residents are seniors who are non-active and have no direct linkage with the region. actief zijn op de arbeidsmarkt en die geen directe link hebben met de regio. This will and is already resluting in a fast aging population in the coastal areas of the countries along 2 seas. The demand for care will follow this increasing aging population. For Belgium we encounter between 21.1 and 32 % of people above 64 in this coast area, which is significantly higher than the whole of Belgium. Same thing happens in Zeeland (the Netherlands) mer specific Zeeuws Vlaanderen where we meet up to 35 % or more of 65+. The coastal areas of England meet the same figures. In France it is a little less severe but in some areas the excesive aging is coming up.
