Apartment development for Holbox denied construction permits

Holbox, Q.R. — The application for the construction of an apartment development for Holbox has been denied by the Ministry of Natural Resources.

An application for the tourist project, Mayan Sunset, was rejected by the Ministry of Environment and Natural Resources (Semarnat) after an evaluation of the Environmental Impact Statement. The project was rejected for noncompliance with regulations on several levels.

Promoters for the Mayan Sunset project were requesting permission to construct four two-room apartment buildings across a total area of 381,000 square meters. They began the application process in June of 2017 but had made adjustments to the original plan.

After a second review by state officials, the project was denied.
