Bacolod City – The Sangguniang Panlungsod is requesting the Bacolod Real Estate Development Corp. (BREDCO) to clarify certain issues before it could act on the latter’s request to reclaim an additional 25 hectares intended for development under the re-planning/re-engineering of its port operations at the Bacolod Reclamation Area.

Bacolod Councilor Al Victor Espino, chair of the SP Committee on Laws, said the SP recently adopted the committee report of the public hearing conducted by his Committee on the matter last year, pending clarification by BREDCO on four concerns raised by the councilors present at the hearing.

Espino said that one of the issues raised involved the ownership of the road. If 30 percent of the road and open spaces was allocated to the city, then why did BREDCO put up a toll gate?

They are also asking BREDCO how much it has consumed of the original 250 hectares under the Comprehensive Revised Reclamation Agreement (CRRA).

Espino said they want these questions answered before they can issue BREDCO a resolution of no objection (RONO) to reclaim additional area.

The reclamation is owned by the city, while the developer is BREDCO, he added.

Meanwhile, the president of ALMANA Property and Development Corp. (APDC) has requested the SP to deny the RONO requested by BREDCO to reclaim an additional 25 hectares at the Reclamation Area.

In his letter to the SP dated Jan. 9, APDC president Ritchie Neil Corpus, said that in April 23, 2012, Bacolod Coastal Ventures Corp. (BCVC), then represented by the late Simplicio Palanca, entered into a deed of absolute sale with assumption of mortgage with Aldrtz Corp., which he represents as president, whereby BCVC sold, ceded, transferred, and conveyed to Adrtz three parcels of land (Lots 17, 3 and 2).

Corpus said the parcels of land, which are now duly registered in the name of Aldrtz Corp., is the same area BREDCO is eyeing to reclaim for its expansion. (Chrysee Semillano via The Visayan Daily Star (TVDS), photo courtesy of TVDS)
