Court: not in the public interest

The proposed religious, cultural, tourism, commercial and tourism, residential and cultural uses of the planning area in the area of the landfill are in contradiction with the Coastal Law and Implementing Regulation numbered 3621.
Although the coastal area covering the landfill is under the responsibility of the Ministry of Public Works and Settlement, the lack of approval is not in compliance with the legislation.
