Isla Mujeres, Q.R. — Due to the lack of corresponding ecological permits, a seaside construction project has been shut down by island Urban Development.
José Nivardo Fernández Martínez, general director of Desarrollo Urbano y Medio Ambiente says that they proceeded to close the project in front of Colegio de Bachilleres after the company was found to be without the necessary permits.
He explained that on May 24, they paid an inspection visit to the site to ensure proper clearing of the land as well as permits to do so, however, they lacked the necessary permits and were not clearning the land according to law.
“On May 24, we found that ecological permits were not available and warned them that they could not use heavy machinery in that area. They ignored it, so we took action on the matter and proceeded, according to the law, to close the construction site to maintain the harmony of the environment that is in that area,” said the director.
