The Thiruvananthapuram Corporation has served show cause notices on 11 tourist resorts in the Vizhinjam area for violating Coastal Regulation Zone (CRZ) norms.
The 11 resorts are among the 31 identified by an expert panel of the Coastal Zone Management Authority as having violated CRZ norms, Additional Chief Secretary (Local Self-Government and Ports) James Varghese said on Tuesday. Of the 11, eight are in the area identified for the Vizhinjam International Container Transshipment Terminal (ICTT) project.
‘’Although 31 resorts were identified in all, only 11 fall within the jurisdiction of the Corporation. So the Corporation has issued show cause notices as to why they should not be demolished,’’ he said.
