Goa: Calangute locals seek special gram sabha over ‘structures’ in CRZ December 03,2019   |  Source: The Navhind Times

The villagers of Calangute want the panchayat to hold a special gram sabha to discuss the draft CZMP for the village and also want their illegal houses and other structures located in the CRZ to be shown in the plan. The environment department had sent an official from the land survey department to explain about the map, which has been drawn for the village of Calangute, and to know if the locals had any suggestions and objections to be raised. The official explained to the people what has been marked on the map like the high-tide line, the low-tide line, the eco-sensitive area and asked them to send their suggestions and objections within 15 days to the CRZ office. However, the villagers raised the issue of their structures which are not shown on the plan.

They asked the panchayat to hold a special gram sabha so that people can raise suggestions and objections. The panchayat members, who were present at the meeting, told the villagers that the panchayat will discuss if it is necessary to hold a special gram sabha on the issue. Sarpanch of Calangute Francisco Rodrigues, when asked if the panchayat will hold a special gram sabha on the issue, he told this daily that he will be discussing the issue with other members and accordingly take a call.
