Interior Minister Andreas Christou has set up a three-member committee to examine possible building violations in the Coral Bay area near Paphos. Christou acknowledged yesterday during a visit to Peyia the existence of irregularities with a number of Cyprus property developments in the area.
Peyia Municipality has come under attack over development in the Coral Bay area, with complaints being heard that members of the local authority have a personal interest in the area. Christou visited Coral Bay last Tuesday, on an unofficial visit to see for himself the extent of the violations.
The minister met with Peyia Municipal Council to discuss the dimension of the problem yesterday.
“I am in contact with the municipality to do right in the area. If there are violations, the state won’t remain with its hands crossed. This is a big issue, which has political, legal and economic aspects, it’s not just about land appropriation.” he said.
