Works are continuing in the Trestrail Estate at Granville Village, Cedros, following reports that a land developer had blocked watercourses and bulldozed forests in the peninsula.
This follows an exclusive Guardian Media report on Monday which showed that the excavation of 64 acres of forest land near the Granville Beach had posed serious risks to the Granville cemetery and the aquifer.
During an interview on Monday, landowner Vincent Rampersad said residents were now mobilising to take legal action against the developer.
A private land developer has bulldozed over 64 acres of forests at the Trestrail Estate in Granville, Cedros, displacing red howler monkeys and clogging the Appang River and its tributaries, whilst leaving the Granville Cemetery on the brink of collapse at the edge of a 100 feet man-made cliff.
The matter is now the subject of an investigation by the Ministry of Planning, the Environmental Management Authority and the Siparia Regional Corporation.
