Cagban Jetty Port, on the DENR’s list of illegal structures in Boracay

The Cagban Jetty Port is included on the Department of Environment’s list of illegal structures in the island of Boracay.

Aside from this port in Cagban the three-storey Tourist Life Guard Rescue and Communication Center at the front beach is also in the list of structures set to be demolished by the Boracay National Task Force.

The clearing of the beach line is pursuant to Presidential Declaration or PD 1064 of the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) particularly the 25+5 easement.

Also included on the list to be torn down are sea walls and fences set by establishments at the front beach, restaurants, and even resorts situated on the cliffs and or rocky beach area at Sitio Din-iwid , and some houses at Tulubhan, Manoc-manoc.

Some structures at the back beach or Bolabog area are also listed.

This means the front beach is not the only focus, but the entire island of Boracay.     
The DENR had previously said that there is some Government Structure which will be included in the demolition.

The move aims to avoid the impediment of water flow at the beach line and to protect the nature such as the white sand beach and forests.

According to PENRO-Aklan Officer Iven Reyes, the implementation of the said demolition is set to pursue on March.

Buildings and or Structures within the 25+5 easement are considered illegal structures in Boracay.
