Public meeting in Kaş concerning the environment - Monday 19th June PDF Print E-mail
Sunday, 18 June 2017

Planning map

There is to be a public meeting in the Republic Square in Kaş on Monday 19th June starting at around 12.00, where a group of people will outline their concerns about a number of development plans being proposed by the local authorities.

The Kaş Protection Platform (Kaş Koruma Platformu) is involved in legal action with the Belediye concerning their plans to develop the area.  The group says this is an important subject for the future of Kaş - particularly with regard to conserving and protecting the environment.

The organisers are inviting anyone who cares about the future of the Kaş district and those who care about the environment to go along.

The Kaş Protection Platform is a group of mainly local people who have joined forces to speak up for the protection of the environment.  They are concerned about the over-development of Kaş and the threats posed to areas of special interest where the push for commercialisation may over-ride the need for conservation.

A matter for the courts
The Antalya Büyükşehir has already been challenged on the plans (1/25.000 Scale Environmental Plan) and the matter is now with the courts.  To assist the judges in their deliberations a number of experts have been instructed to come to Kaş to see things for themselves. 

They are coming on Monday and the Kaş Protection Platform would like them to see how strongly people feel about the need to protect and preserve the environment.  This is why they are asking people to come along to Republic Square.  The organisers believe that a good turnout may count for something when the experts draw up their report for the court.

The concerns

Kaş Protection Platform is concerned that if this plan comes into effect;

  • the sea would be polluted;
  • the coastal areas will be ruined;
  • natural, historical and cultural treasures would be under severe threat;
  • the flora that holds the climatic balance would be destroyed;
  • the local climate will be affected and temperatures will rise due to dense concrete buildings, and
  • there will be a dramatic change in the approach to tourism, which currently depends on the unique natural and cultural environments.
