The Federal Office of Environmental Protection (PROFEPA) temporarily closed a real estate development that occupies a total area of 1,836 square meters, located in the beach town of Chelem. This action was taken due to the lack of federal authorization in terms of environmental impact granted by the Ministry of Environment and Natural Resources.
PROFEPA personnel detected a real estate development in construction inside a coastal protected ecosystem. The inspectors found that of the total area occupied by the villa-type development, 260.82 square meters are located within the Federal Maritime Terrestrial Zone (ZOFEMAT), which is obviously invasion of a federal zone and protected area.
The 234 square meters constructed without authorization include a concrete terrace, two garden areas, a palapa and concrete stairs to access the beach.
