Another new development dredging up the back lagoon using the material dredged from the lagoon bottom to get the property above sea level so they can build on it.
Its a technique used by a lot of new developments. the property is low-lying mangrove swamp and the dredging permit is abused using the product as fill to raise the property up higher than sea level.It totally destroys the environment for animal or plant life above and below the surface. calling it Bonefish Bay is a sick joke no bonefish will ever be able to live there again,and all the mangroves will be destroyed but some foreigner will get rich doing it.
A young George price said,'Our development and our growth shall not be by paths that would deprive us of the ownership and control of our assets and resources.'
A statement he made after freeing Belize from colonialism and creating the Alien Landholding ordinance.
the Alien Land Holding Ordinance is a law used to regulate the right of foreigners to buy land, and introduced certain development conditions. foreigners had to get a license from the minister after showing how they would develop the land.
That puts the responsibility square on the shoulders of the minister and our prime minister today is Dean Barrow.
The department under his supervision giving permission for this atrocity is;
The Ministry of Natural Resources and the Environment

The advertisement is a familiar pattern, it shows coconut trees and clear ocean views of the reef, offers it unbelievably cheap, offers 'your own little piece of paradise' and sells them adulterated mangrove swamp in the back of the island.
No truth in advertising laws here in Belize.
