Repeat complaint: Hotel chain builds two buildings in Cabarete in violation of laws

PUERTO PLATA.- Despite several complaints about the construction in Cabarete of a 3-storey building whose structure occupies the 60 meters that are in the public domain and a 5-storey building on the side of the highway, the competent authorities still do nothing to stop the real estate project of the Lifestyle Holidays.

According to information published in the portal “Cabarete Noticias” it is stated that apparently with the complicity of all the authorities, the Lifestyle chain without permission, works in the same building located on the same beach in Cabarete.

It was learned that due to several irregularities, the tourism ministry returned to the hotel chain the documents of the project for being incomplete, while the governmental portfolio has advised that they should not build within 60 meters of the beach. A public hearing was requested but never took place.

Nor has a letter of no objection been issued by the mayor of Sosua directed by Ilanna Neumann and the district council of Cabarete headed by Raquel Sierra, although the councilors of Sosua and Cabarete have denounced that work is illegal.

The construction of the 5-storey building began a year ago, exactly in August 2016 and it has no environmental license, since the only permit that Lifestyle has is a very questionable environmental permit because it is covered by a decree issued in 1992 in the name of another entity and is not valid because it is non-transferable.

The 3-story Lifestyle Holidays chain’s building is now located within 60 meters of the beach, occupies the access to the beach of Cabarete along the highway road where supposedly the district board announced that there will build a boulevard, project which only remains in the advertisement.
