TOI, last week had reported that the Seawoods plot MahaRera certificate was recently acquired, although in the SC legal dispute is ongoing. In 2018 Cidco had given building permissions to the developer and the MahaRera project is registered on these permissions.
Sunil Agarwal the head of Cidco said “Besides MahaRera, I have also complained to the Bombay high court-appointed wetlands grievance redressal committee that no work commencement should take place inside the 2.7 hectares of pockets D and E at Seawoods as this is a wetland, and the matter is currently pending in the SC. The builder had somehow taken the MahaRera certificate without disclosure of pending litigation and showing an earlier Cidco approval document (before October 2018).”
“On Sunday, heavy-duty machines were seen doing work inside the plot. Earlier, in January 2020, nearly 700 trees were cut on this site, which we had objected to.”
“I have seen Agarwal’s fresh complaint on the Seawoods plot, which is part of the 35.6-hectare land where a golf course and realty plots were planned. I will place this matter before the wetlands panel on Monday so that action can be taken to stop further developmental work” said the Environmentalist and member of the wetlands protection panel, D Stalin.
