The Rendezvous Caye ECP permits the following on Rendezvous Caye:
The ECP does not provide any specifics on the size of the docks, or how they are to be rehabilitated or modified.
The You Tube video available above was taken by a local Placencia fishing guide and tour operator and clearly shows a seawall that protrudes above ground approximately 2 feet, clearly in contravention of the ECP, Sections 1 and Sections 3.02. Subsection 3.02.4 clearly states that the seawall must be buried to improve the aesthetics of the shoreline.
(Note: if you are in Belize and have to suffer with our abysmally slow and expensive Internet connection speeds, start the YouTube video, then hit pause and allow the video to completely load before playing it.)
Section 4.09 of the ECP provides that wanton disregard for the conditions agreed upon in the ECP may result in revocation of all permits and licenses issued for the implementation of the development and in the imposition of adminstrative and/or legal penalties.
We have contacted DOE, Geology and Land Utilization Authority and filed an official complaint about the seawall. We are also trying to determine whether the developer has dredged more than allowed by its dredging permit from Geology.
