NCC could require EIA for Barker’s coastal works application

A controversial coastal works application that calls for construction of a 300′ dock and the removal of more than four acres of seagrass will be reviewed by the Department of Environment, under delegated authority from the national Conservation Council, before it goes to cabinet.

The DOE told Cayman 27 in theory, the National Conservation Council has the ability to require an environmental impact assessment to inform its advice, however it says no decision has been made on this application as of yet.

The NCC has used its EIA requirement powers sparingly in the past.

Out of more than 600 consultations in the 18-month period ending at the end of 2017, less than one percent were deemed to require an EIA.
