Mayor clarifies no construction permits or building requests made for Pok ta Pok

Cancun, Q.R. — “We have not received any requests,” said Cancun Mayor Ana Paty Peralta de la Peña regarding a Pok ta Pok real estate project. The mayor says her administration has not received any permit or permission-to-build requests regarding the residential Cancun Hotel Zone area.

Peralta says her understanding is that the process is still in the MIA (environmental impact statement or Manifestación de Impacto Ambiental) phase, which she admits, takes a long time.

She says the city has not received any request much less given any permit for the construction of a real estate complex in the Pok ta Pok Golf Course area.

Peralta, seen center, says no permits have been requested or approved for real estate construction in Pok ta Pok.

“We have not received any requests. What I know is that the MIA is being processed, but well, an MIA takes a long time, but at the municipal level, we have not received anything nor have we given any permits,” she clarified Thursday after a City Council meeting.

Peralta made the clarification after local reports of permits and construction being started on the land of the once popular golf course.
