The property is about 2 km from Silistar beach and on the territory of the former cooperative farm. According to the uninhabited but new general development plan of the municipality, the construction of campsites should be allowed. According to Toma Belev of the Association of Parks in Bulgaria, however, with today's decision, the city council of Tsarevo gives the green light for unregulated construction:
"It is part of the Strandja nature park. It is part of two Natura 2000 protected areas. A place that is important for the protection of the protected area in Strandja. This could lead to multiple negative processes on the territory itself and to change the development purpose of the park, especially with regard to Silistar. There are protected areas on both sides of the bay and in the small parts between the beach and the road, construction is currently under waythat the way this area is used and changes will increase the pollution"Belev said.

About the mayor of Tsarevo Georgi Lapchev, however, the claim that unregulated construction is allowed behind Silistar fake news:
"This point only concerns the adoption of a plan with which the biggest problem of Silistar can be solved, namely once. I do not know if you think back years when some people break the road and say they can not come here and say it legally because they are the owners. 25 years ago, when this building was sold in a strange way, someone has artificially wiped the road. With this report we try to get back on track. This is not about building at all. This is an urbanized area ""said the mayor.
Classify beach verges into four main groups

And more details on the Georgi Lapchev case will be given tomorrow morning.
