SP refuses to reclassify agri
land for subdivision project

The Dumaguete City Sangguniang Panlungsod refused to act on the request of Camella Communities Inc., owner and developer of Camella Negros Oriental, to reclassify areas in barangays Cantil-e and Bajumpandan from agricultural to residential, unless it complies with the conditions when it established Phase 1 and Phase 2 in Candau-ay.

Vice Mayor Woodrow Maquiling Sr. said members of the SP do not want to entertain applications for a development permit and reclassification of the lot affected by the proposed housing subdivision unless 20 percent of Phase 1 and another 20 percent of Phase 2 are established in Dumaguete. This is provided in section 18 of Republic Act 7279, or the Urban Development and Housing Act of 1992, that states that developers are obliged to comply with “balanced housing development” in areas where they have projects. moremoremore
