Abstract How the planning of landuse in Denmark, has in recent years been well discussed, because of the necessity of having a country in sync with the development of society. In recent times wish for a more economic growth orientated planning has risen from several agents within the field of planning. Local Government Denmark has in the start of 2015 proposed 32 suggestions how to optimize The Planning Act towards a more economic growth orientation. Three of these suggestions regard planning within the coastal zone. The baseline for the danish government has been to protect and keep the nature in its current state, but in recent years it has been examined weather it is possible to build in the coastal area without compromising with the resources of nature. This project report examines the trial, issued by the state, of tourism within the coastal area, where ten projects potentially will be given permission to build within the coastal zone. To examine this trial, the project group has chosen to use case study as basis for the project report. We have chosen to focus on Søndervig Feriepark located in Ringkøbing-Skjern Municipality near The North Sea, which is one of the ten potential projects for the trial. This project report will examine whether or not the purpose of The Planning Act is compromised through this Government issued trial, and who has the right to decide how the planning of an area should be. The project report rely on David Harvey’s articles From Managerialism to Entrepreneuralism: The Transformation in Urban Governance in Late Capitalism from 1989 and The Right to the City from 2008. These articles were chosen to get an overview of the change in paradigms from managerialism to entrepreneuralism in urban planning and whether the planning of society has transformed from servicing the collective interest to focusing on economic growth and serve the interest of the few wealthy. This will be supplemented through the theory of roles on planning by Karina Sehested. It can be concluded that The Planning Act should not be seen as a barrier for economic growth, but instead be used for its positive attributes. The trial has an impact on who has the right to the coast, because of the vast number of people affected by the implementing of the trial. Furthermore it can be concluded, that through the completion of the trial, the right to decide how an area should be planned, has changed from the collective interest of the people to a few wealthy key players.
