The major ports around the world are trying to build not only durable environmentally sound ports but also create a nice waterfront area which goes with the port. and we should not over look these world trends.
Thus, the aim of this study is to convert modern cognition and this study began on the faith that the systematic development of waterfront space can act on a continuous energy of port competition.
Chapter 1 is an explanation of the purpose of the study, Chapter 2 is an explanation of the terms that were used in the study.
In chapter 3, we study about the examples of foreign development waterfront, In the case of the U. S. and Europe was focused on they redevelopment of ports and in the case of Japan, we focused on the insurance of the waterfront that goes with the port institution during this development process between the new-port and the new-city.
In our country, we can compare both cases.
The necessity of both new developments and redevelopments is appears right now and will continue to appear in the future.
In chapter 4, we will discuss the present conditions of ports, for example the port development policy of Korea and the presence of waterfront space, in regard to the ports as well as study for the waterfront plans in Korea.
In Korea all kind, of development and investment planners in ports is taken by the central government.
In Korea, the actual results for waterfront area assistance is quite low but because of the ports function and redevelopment plans, the demands for waterfront area inside of port will increase.
And in chapter 4, there is a waterfront area plan that regarded to new port development and an old port redevelopment.
Korea has a plan to develop a waterfront area by investing one trillion two hundred eighty two billion won in all the main ports till 2020.
In chapter 4 we study about the desirable direction of port waterfront development and the necessity for this development.
Finally, in chapter 5, is a conclusion to this study.
In the case of Korea, redevelopment of and new development to port are happening to the came time. And the management of the ports can be converted from government control to the PA (Port Authority).
So, the participation of citizen will be more magnified.
In all of these plans, the nations of waterfront should not be excluded.
We have to follow the previous success of other developed countries and develop a waterfront that is good for our environment, and for this, special effort and studies are required.
