The demolition of the structures of West Cove Resort which are no longer covered by the Tenurial Instrument-Flag T held by the resort owner Crisostomo Aquino is expected to last for 1 month.
The demolition started on the 19th of July.
The demolition’s duration was learned from the demolition team. The team consists of sixty (60) persons tasked by the Mayor of Malay, Mayor John Yap to demolish the structures that are on top of the rocks at the sea. The presence of these structures, no longer included in the 928 square meter scope of the Flag T, was said to be the violation of the resort.
In connection to this, since the demolition would take some time and the demolished wall will go to the sea, the demolition contract will allegedly include the hauling of the demolition debris.
In a related development, because demolition has started on a resort that transgressed the law implemented by the Department of Environment and Natural Resources and the Ordinance implemented in Boracay, the Local Government of Malay has voiced out readiness to take action on other resorts in the island which have similar violations, and that if demolition is needed, demolition will allegedly take place according to the Mayor.
