Five Kochi buildings to be razed down for CRZ violations

Updated : May 30, 2019 08:37 AM IST

The Supreme Court ordered five apartment complexes on Maradu island to be demolished for construction on a CRZ-III zone, an area where several activities including construction is strictly regulated.
The Court order quotes Vembanad Lake’s distinct biodiversity and wetland status, and highlights the role that such illegal constructions could have played in the Kerala floods of 2018.
However, owners and builders of the flats hope to submit a review appeal citing changed CRZ norms.
