Temporary structures at Boracay’s vegetation area, given 7 days to be removed

Written by: Alan Palma Sr.

The Boracay Re-development Task Force has given all those with illegal structures at the vegetation area, 7 days to tear it down.

This was started yesterday, August 21, and will end on August 28, 2013.

This is what the task force has requested in a meeting on Wednesday during which those cited with the violation have been called upon.

Some that were asked to be removed are tents, beach huts, stage structures and others which are within the 25+5 easement.

According to SB Member Rowen Aguirre of the Committee on Laws and Ordinances, only tables and chairs are allowed to be set up in the mentioned area from 5 in the afternoon until 6 in the morning.

Illegal structures that are not removed on the given deadline will be demolished by the Task Force itself, and may lead to closure or revocation of business permit.

The conference was attended by more or less 50 businessmen and representatives who took note of the process that the Boracay Re-development Task Force will be implementing.

This is in accordance to Malacañang’s mandate for the preservation of the island of Boracay.
