Systematically explore, using focus groups, and secondary data the extent of socio-economic implications caused by increase in average age of holidaymaker's stay at Walmington-on-Sea District Council (WDC).Focus Group for case study will be carried out by taking a sample of 20 people who will from age group ranging 20-60 years in order to gain the knowledge of vast perspective.Focus Group will be undertaken through direct discussions with the individuals. The simple Random sampling design will be used to make precise inferences about the target population. The sample strategy will include younger as well as older residents of Walmington. The focus group will focus on Walmington. Most of the previous studies cover the inland regions. But the cutting edge of the study will be its concentration on the Coastal area of Walmington. Although this cutting edge will also become a hindrance because we will not be able to find much data from the previous studies to which we can refer for comparative purposes.
Most of the previous studies indicate the rising trends of migration from urban areas towards the rural regions. This is not only effecting the social factors but also changing the employment conditions (Dissart and Deller, 2000; 135-161; Lewis, Hunt, and Plantinga, 2002; 245-259).O'Reilly (2004; 102) states that these may include the weather conditions of a place and benefits to health feature highly, as do the slower pace of life, quality of life, the culture of the destination, and the cost of living, a better quality retirement or in order to be able to retire early; some wants a new a challenge or the opportunity to begin a new life. On the other hand many people see it beneficial to migrate towards suburban and rural environments.
However, the study undertaken by O' Rielly (2004) also found among those, a number of 'push' factors; that is, negative experiences that pushed people to think about leaving a place. People are moving to coastal towns to escape high crime rates, especially in inner city areas. Parents are migrating to give their children a better life, or a better start, or to get them away from youth culture in Britain. This is due to the fact that the urban areas are growing at a fast pace making living costly and harder to afford.
Mieszkowski and Mills (1993; 135-147) states that the lower rate of negative factors (i.e. lower social and fiscal problems) make a place favourite destination for migration. Other factors, such as population growth, household income, agricultural land rents, and commuting costs, determine sprawl and urban growth at the fringe (Brueckner and Pansier, 1983; 479-482).
Duffy-Deno, (1998; 109-136) states that the migration decision of the household is shaped according to the fiscal, local, and amenity factors.
Fiscal factors are associated with public-sector costs of moving to a new
