Department of Environment says no to Port of Belize Cruise/Cargo Project – is it final?

Posted: Tuesday, December 6, 2022. 7:56 pm CST.

By Aaron Humes: After multiple rounds of consultation and review, the Department of the Environment (DOE) today slammed shut the window on the proposed cruise port and expansion of the cargo facility at Port Loyola, Belize City, Belize District, submitted by Port of Belize Limited.

It follows a decision, not unanimous according to reports, from the National Environmental Appraisal Committee (NEAC) on November 24, 2022, to recommend that the project not be granted environmental clearance. That decision, the DOE said in a press release issued this evening, was “on the basis of the scientific and technical information before it…”.

The NEAC’s mandate under the Environmental Impact Assessment Regulations is focused on the environmental impacts and key social and economic impacts that any proposed project could potentially have. The DOE says it gave “careful consideration” to its recommendation and decided to accept it, and has so informed the developer.

Prime Minister John Briceño has told reporters that the developer is within their rights to challenge the decision in court.
