This is a gross CRZ violation….Just because the government is constructing the rooms it doesn’t allow them to ignore the CRZ norms. Doesn’t Michael lobo know that even the plinth cannot be constructed ?
Almost two decades after they were first proposed and three years after chief minister Manohar Parrikar laid the foundation stone for the construction of changing rooms and restrooms at Candolim beach, work on the project finally commenced recently.
“With the current BJP-led coalition government focussing on creating better infrastructure, work has now started on the facility,” deputy speaker and Calangute MLA Michael Lobo said. The facility, being built at a cost of Rs 1.2 crore, will be ready in four months. As the area falls in the no-development zone close to the beach, the facility, except for the plinth, will be built without using concrete.
Plans are afoot to construct more such facilities near the Sinquerim jetty which also witnesses high tourist footfall on a daily basis.
