Sartène (Corsica), France


Within the framework of the Corsican Sustainable Urban Development Development Plan (PADDUC), several development projects have been launched. While the PADDUC should lead to a rational and sustainable development of the coastline, its interpretation by some municipalities contributes to the artificialisation of an already fragile coastline.

Among these construction projects, Surfrider Foundation Europe deplores in Sartène, a tourist project in the remarkable area of Murta Spana.

Cancellation of the Sartène PLU by the Bastia Administrative Court on 28 January 2010.
