Tribunal has ordered Cavelossim beach to be restored

Goa: The National Green Tribunal  has ordered for a stretch of the Cavelossim beach to be restored within three months, after mud and construction material was found illegally dumped within the no development zone of the coastal regulation zone  area. The Cavelossim villagers’ forum had filed an application before the NGT against the local panchayat, among others, pointing to the illegal activity on the beach. The forum had also asked NGT to direct the violators to compensate the village for the environmental damage caused by destroying sand dunes and undertaking illegal construction and commercial activities in violation of CRZ Regulation, 2011.

A joint team from Goa state bio-diversity Board (GSBB) and GCZMA inspected the beach stretch this month and submitted a report.The team recommended that the concrete floors and parking floor on the beach side has to be removed, and to also remove boulders and prominent red coarse rocks protruding from the soil which the team pointed out, may not mix with the sand dune ecology.The experts also recommended that a bamboo fence be erected on the coastal side to prevent access to visitors to the sand dunes and which will also facilitate the restoration process.
