CRZ Violations Near Arupadai Veedu Murugan Temple: Election Preparations Impede Resolution Efforts

Efforts to address Coastal Regulation Zone (CRZ) violations near the Arupadai Veedu Murugan Temple in Besant Nagar have been hindered by the heavy pre-election workload for the local body, according to a Chennai Corporation councillor. Despite complaints filed through various channels and efforts by local authorities, including designated dumping sites for construction and debris waste, the problem persists.

Residents have expressed frustration over the continuous dumping of debris in the area, highlighting the need for immediate action to enforce regulations. The councillor emphasized the importance of addressing this issue and proposed measures such as CCTV surveillance and barricades to deter violators. The dumping of construction waste not only violates CRZ provisions but also contravenes Tamil Nadu Pollution Control Board regulations, warranting stringent enforcement measures to curb the practice and protect the coastal environment.
