Environmental Clearance Granted for Toucan Bay Development Project in Corozal District
The Toucan Bay Development Limited Project has been granted environmental clearance by the National Environmental Appraisal Committee (NEAC). The project’s proposal is to develop a residential and commercial project on 211 acres of land located in the Corozal District, at the border of the Corozal Bay Wildlife Sanctuary. NEAC registered their approval, saying that the decision was made in their last meeting on August 22 where the committee reviewed and deliberated on the Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) Report. The NEAC recommended that the project be granted environmental clearance with conditions to protect several cultural (Archaeological) remains on the project site and to reduce the potential adverse environmental impacts on land and the marine environment.
