L’habitat flottant en France : cadre juridique et perspectives

Abstract : The floating housing developed in France in the 1970s after the collapse of the batelleries. Highly prized for its marginal appearance and affordability, the accomodation is mainly organized on the navigable waterways of the public river domain. This phenomenon increased without a properly defined regulatory framework. Technical, legal and tax issues arise and prevent the administration to apply homogeneous rules on the territory. Thus, many jurisprudences punctuate the floating housing sector used as a main residence. Inspired by close countries, such as the Netherlands, this way of accommodation offers different perspectives. These real floating accomodations give a new face to urban planning in areas exposed to high risks of flooding (amphibious constructions). Professionals tend to promote this market in France and face a certain legal situation. Does not it constitute an obstacle to the development of floating housing ? Aware of the evolution of this field, local authorities and local authorities aspire to change the law.
