The main purpose of this dissertation is to determine to which extent the South African law provides for integrated regulatory measurers pertaining to land use and planning activities in order to ensure sustainable coastal development. In order to answer the aforementioned research question, a broad background is given with regard to the current unsustainable coastal developments. The legal definition for the coastal zone is also established. Thereafter an investigation is done with specific reference to the most important land use and planning as well as environmental legislation which regulated activities in the coastal zone before the commencement of the National Environmental Management: Integrated Coastal Management Act 24 of 2008 during 2009. Subsequently, the paradigm shift after 2009 as brought about by the National Environmental Management: Integrated Coastal Management Act 24 of 2008 is discussed critically, with reference to the instruments as introduced by the act to promote sustainable coastal development and to ensure integrated coastal management. It is concluded that after 2009, the South African law does indeed make provision for integrated regulatory measures pertaining to land use and planning activities in order to ensure sustainable coastal developments. Some challenges, however, remain and recommendations are made in this regard.
