Awareness-raising debate on Alagoas Brancas to be held next week

in Algarve · 05-07-2018 14:27:00 · 0 Comments

The newly-formed Lagoa Naturalmente environmental interest group is to stage a public debate on the Alagoas Brancas wetlands, which are currently under threat of development.

The awareness-raising debate aims to draw the attention of the wider public to the environmental importance of the Alagoas Brancas and their significance in the local community.
It is to be held at the São José Convent on Saturday 14 July, from 4pm to 7pm.
It is open to the public and will be attended by local councillors, teachers, and representatives of various environmental associations, as well as the scores of people who have spoken out in defence of the bird-rich Alagoas Brancas from which the city of Lagoa takes its name.
It is understood a renewed request has been submitted by Edifícios Atlânticos S.A., a Lisbon-based real estate development company, allegedly to obtain licensing to divide the wetlands into plots.
Lagoa council opened a period of public consultation which ended on Friday 25 May.
It is understood the council has now invited APA (Portuguese Environment Agency) and INCF (Institute for the Conservation of Nature and Forests) to give their opinions on the matter.
