New Cabarete building said to violate zoning laws

Several news reports from Cabarete focused on the construction of a five-story building in the center of Cabarete that apparently is being built without securing the proper permits.  As reported, the construction of the building, owned by Lifestyle, was authorized by the provincial director for the Ministry of Tourism in Puerto Plata, Lorenzo Sancassani.

Cabarete Noticias online portal says the property violates the land use plan for the area. As reported, the building is only 15 meters back from the Atlantic Ocean, which is in violation of the zoning laws that ban any construction 60 meters from the shore. Reportedly, the builders secured a presidential decree authorizing the construction and did not go through the usual procedures for construction in the area.

Cabarete Noticias observes that the building is at risk from suffering flooding and collapse.
