Des « cabanes » à la « cabanisation » : la face cachée de l’urbanisation sur le littoral du Languedoc-Roussillon

Abstract : The development of illegal housing is a reality on a national scale, in particular on coasts experiencing a strong anthropological pressure. In Languedoc-Roussillon, the consumption of space by the licit urbanization on the coastal zone comes along with an illegal occupation of the space by a precariousor any comfort housing not falling under the rules of urban planning, occupied in a temporary or permanent way by populations of very diverse social standing. The processing of a traditional accomodation (« cabane ») as a problem of public policy(« cabanisation ») and the overlap between traditional and recent occupations, native and non-native inhabitants gets mayors into trouble, as they are asked to find a socio-territorial balance in a context of an increasing human, financial and electoral pressure. This article aims to highlight this mode of occupation of the coast and to characterize its specificities. It offers an understanding framework of « cabanisation » profiles, allowing to highlight the differentiated treatment of this phenomenon and appreciate different territorialities and various marginalization forms undergone by certain resident populations on the coast of Languedoc-Roussillon
