MANILA BAY RECLAMATION PROJECT OPPOSED

0

A House leader has opposed the planned 148-hectare, three-island Manila Bay reclamation project, which would establish Manila Solar City, it was learned on Friday. Neophyte Douglas Hagedorn of Palawan, vice chairman of the House Committee on Ecology, noted that the proposed Manila Solar City reclamation project of Manila Gold Coast Development Corp. (MGCDC)-which would establish a park, a man-made beach and a terminal for international cruise ships all rolled into one-cannot proceed without an enabling law. Hagedorn, the brother of former Mayor Eduard Hagedorn of Puerto Princesa City, cited that Manila’s local ordinance cannot supersede a Presidential Proclamation, much more overrule Republic Act 7586, or the National Integrated Protected Areas System Act of 1992, Republic Act 10066 or the National Cultural Heritage Act and Republic Act or the Strengthening People’s Nationalism Through Philippine History Act.
