Deputy João Vasconcelos, elected from the Left Block by the Faro circle, requested the presence of the Environment Minister, João Pedro Matos Fernandes, in parliament to discuss the demolitions scheduled for November in the Ria Formosa.
Several homeowners on the island of Culatra, Faro, were notified to take office on November 7 and later demolish. In total, there are 14 dwellings in the population centers of the Lighthouse and Hangars.
"In this way, it is tried to impose, by force, unfair political decisions that affect proven situations of houses of fishermen and shellfishers," the congressman said in a statement.
For João Vasconcelos, "it is urgent to listen to the minister, because the situation of injustice is even greater when a variety of criteria are applied regarding the demolition and non-demolition of constructions in the barrier islands."
"There are apartments and luxury condominiums built in the area of public maritime domain and nothing happens to them," said the bloc.
In a document submitted to the Parliamentary Committee on Environment, Spatial Planning, Decentralization, Local Power and Housing, where the urgent need for the Environment Minister is required, the deputy elected by the Algarve stressed that "it is necessary to reconcile Ria's environmental defense with the interests and income of resident populations ".
"The protection, conservation and enhancement of the Ria Formosa is not incompatible with a controlled, regulated and responsible human occupation, as they complement each other in a necessary and sustainable balance," he said.
