New construction plans in Datça

Somebody forwarded this interesting article to me from 'Hurriyet'.

It talks about a large new planned development in Datça, which is something that will probably have an impact on all us ex-pats who live here or who have houses here.

Does anyone know any more about this?

Opening of Turkish resort town of Datça to construction raises environmental concerns

Re: New construction plans in Datça

It looks like opening the way for someone who knows someone influential to make lots of money and stuff the environment.

Yesim has already been demolished down to the first floor but remains open for the time being. Cennet and Cemal's will be demolished next.
Rumour has it that there will not be hotels but 600,000m2/ 60 hectares have been allocated for a private villa and large gardens.

Re: New construction plans in Datça

Kanga - that's depressing. 60 hectares of more private villas is just what Datça doesn't need. Something tells me that the density will be quite high and the gardens fairly small.

I'm sorry to hear that Yeşim Bar is being demolished and that the other places along the beach will be next.

60 hectares is about 150 acres. That's quite a lot of land. I don' think the flat area of Kargi Bay can be more than 25 or 30 hectares, so presumably this new project will also be covering the hills that surround the bay.

Re: New construction plans in Datça

In the article it does say land NEAR Kargi Bay. We have been told that it is the land on the way to Kargi near the school. Time will tell!

It does also state that half of the land has been designated for private build:

By changing the status of the land from public to private, the council paved the way for residential construction on half of 56 hectares of land near the bay. Some 24 percent of the aforementioned area will be turned into parks, 21 percent will be earmarked for roads, and 3 percent will be reserved for worshipping areas, according to information obtained by daily Hürriyet.

There are already water problems in the area.

Sonny Jim - yes, thank you for pointing that out. The article says 'near' the bay, which is an important difference.

Re: New construction plans in Datça

Well good luck to anyone building near the college. The land all along the seaward side is a thin layer of soil with a clay underpin, which is not good for drainage. In wet weather the rainwater lies for a long time. The whole area on the seaward side of the road has been zoned for development for many years, this is nothing new, and there are plans in the belediye showing roads etc in the area. At one time a small recuperation/hospital building was planned up on the hill above the bay, but apparently that plan has been abandoned as it would be too near the sea and too exposed to bad weather.
A few years ago tobacco was grown in the area but it was abandoned as the land is poor.
There are 2 large building plots behind us for sale at US $200k each, and roads are already planned.

Re: New construction plans in Datça

I've spoken to a couple of people this morning about what's going on with the demolition of the Yeşim Bar.

They seem to think that the demolition of the first floor and some outbuildings is voluntary and not by order of the Belediye. It's being done to remove illegal parts of the existing construction. And once the building is 'legal' it will be possible for the owner to apply to enlarge the building. That all seems to make sense.

There seems to be no certainty about where this 56-hectare development block is. Someone suggested to me that it is the hillside to the north/east of the boat repair yard (i.e. from the boat repair yard back towards Datça), which they think is owned by a wealthy family from Istanbul. This seems very steep for building. But not impossibly steep, unfortunately!

Re: New construction plans in Datça

It would be difficult to find anything totally 'legal' along the beach!

Mavi - the area you mention was put up for sale some time ago, with planning only for pansyon, not residential.
My biggest worry is the inevitable pollution and destruction of clean sea waters. As you know, the water/sewage situation is pretty primitive to say the least. Will there be a pumping station to link sewage systems to the mains?
How will they cope with the extra demand for water?
