Authorities close construction work in a nature reserve in El Cuyo

Due to damage to the coastal dune ecosystem, personnel from the Secretary of Environment and Natural Resources (Semarnat) closed the work that an individual had started a couple of weeks ago in the port of El Cuyo.

Just last week a scandal broke out at the police station when a group of neighbors demonstrated against the construction of a project next to the shelter port.

Although the defendant claimed that he had the permit and that he even acquired the concession 11 years ago, people opposed it.

This caused the National Commission of Protected Natural Areas (Conanp) to intervene and a report was drawn up for the recorded events.

As a result of this movement, the group of workers suspended the work because the people threatened that they would prevent it.

This Wednesday the inspectors went to the site and noted the damage, so they immediately proceeded to place the closure seals.

According to Conanp personnel, perhaps the individual had the Land Congruence granted to him by the Municipal authority but not the authorization of Semarnat.

They even pointed out that even if all the procedures were done, permission to build in the dock would not be granted because the port of El Cuyo is considered a sea turtle sanctuary.

On the other hand, after notifications and warnings from the auxiliary authority in the port, to tour the summer area in front of the beach to verify that there is no type of construction, no movement has been made.

The situation in the port remains relatively calm after the tension experienced in the community.

On April 9, a conflict occurred in the area known as the “shelter port” of El Cuyo, because work began in an area that a group of residents consider protected.

The problem arose when workers began to delimit the space that would serve as the foundation for the construction of a warehouse for fishing gear belonging to an individual originally from El Cuyo.

Given the uncertainty, a group of dissatisfied people went to the site to prevent the work from continuing and demanded the presence of the municipal authorities.
