The implemented 30-meter easement rule is allegedly not only for the front beach of Boracay but also for all the establishments in the island.
According to DOT Boracay Officer-In-Charge Tim Ticar, the Boracay Redevelopment Task Force will also focus on other infrastructures in Boracay including residential areas that violated the 30-meter easement rule.
The next move will be undertaken after the Task Force’s clearing operation in the month of March at the beach front.
It was learned that there are still business establishments at the beach front who had violated the easement rule, and have been ordered to be removed.
Meanwhile, the Task Force itself demolished the infrastructures of establishments who did not tear down their “illegal structures”.
Seven (7) more business establishments at the beach front were given a deadline which is Saturday, March 15 to remove their illegal structure.
Recently, Tourism Secretary, Ramon Jimenez, and DILG Secretary, Mar Roxas inspected business establishments in Boracay who followed the Presidential Proclamation 1064.
