Prov’l SP okays Hinoba-an land reclassificaton ordinance
The Negros Occidental Sangguniang Panlalawigan has approved the ordinance of the Municipality of Hinoba-an reclassifying a portion of Brgy. Bacuyangan from agricultural to industrial land.
Municipal Ordinance 2017-03 increases the industrial area in the barangay from 348,864 square meters to 2,828,546 square meters.
Board Member Alain Gatuslao said the reclassification of the land aims to create an industrial zone in the area.
The planned industrial estate will openup the land to a proposed Japanese ship recycling facility.
Gatuslao said the next step is for the provincial government to submit all documents to the Department of Agrarian Reform (DAR) to enable the land to be converted for industrial use.*(NDB)
