Sample text

Despite suffering a number of setbacks to development such as the building of the Atlantic Wall and the demolition of many of its buildings during the Second World War, its seaside resorts remained popular throughout the 1960s. But, as in England, they started to lose their visitor share in the 1970s, and many became characterised by a deteriorating environment (Mason & Studsholt, 2001). In contrast, although beginning in the early to mid-19th century, the Swedish and Danish resorts developed at a much slower rate throughout the 20th century, and currently exhibit few indicators of decline (Mason & Studsholt, 2001).

These changes, in turn, have occurred alongside but are not reducible to a shift in the regime of accumulation in advanced capitalist societies (Ioannides & Debbage, 1997), from Fordism (characterised by mass production and consumption, standardisation and large-volume sales with attendant economies of scale) to neo-Fordism (characterised by flexible/smaller-scale production, increased market segmentation and more individualised consumption). In short, unilinear models of resort development such as the TALC overlook those structural changes or ‘universal processes’ (Cooke, 1987; cited in Agarwal, 1997b: 139) that are ultimately responsible for the rise and fall of destination areas, primarily economic restructuring and cultural change.

However, the experience of resorts elsewhere in Northern Europe is not overlooked and is dealt with in the latter part of this chapter. Causes and Consequences of Northern European Resort Decline Agarwal (2002: 39Á 40) suggests that the ‘causes of [resort] decline are difficult to disentangle from its consequences’ and it is possible to note a tendency to confuse the former with the latter in earlier, generally descriptive accounts of the threats facing cold-water coastal resorts in Britain and Northern Europe in the post-war period (see Middleton, 1989 for an example).
