Abstract. Urban expansion is a phenomenon that has been observed since the mid-20th century in more developed regions. One aspect of it is the urban development of holiday resorts with second homes that generally appeared following world political stabilisation. This residential expansion has often happened with scarce control, especially in its early stages, allowing areas to be occupied that are not so suitable in terms of the environment, culture and landscape, not to mention the very geological risks of flooding, earthquakes and landslides. Indeed, the risk of landslides for buildings occupying land in zones at such risk is not a matter solely attributable to the geomorphological characteristics of the land itself, nor is it simply a question of chance; it is also due to its management of such land, generally because of a lack of specific regulations. This study aims to lay down objective criteria to find how suitable a specific local entity's risk management is by looking at the evolution of its urban development procedures. It also aims to determine what causes the incidence of landslide risk (geomorphology, chance, land management, etc.), and finally to suggest control tools for the public bodies tasked with monitoring such matters.

Short summary
Risk Ratio (RR) developed in this article stands out as a robust indicator for finding the relationship between residential construction and its associated landslide risk. It showed especially useful for municipalities on the Mediterranean coast, since it differentiates between those that take on a higher risk than those that do not. Our research lays down valuable criteria to find how suitable a specific local entity's risk management is and explore what causes the incidence of landslide risk.
