DR Tourism Property Land Use Plan

On March 26th of 2012, the Ministry of Tourism of the Dominican Republic issued Resolutions which establish the “Tourism Sector Land Use and Organization Plan” and modify the Urban and Construction parameters for the northern part of the Samaná Peninsula, the Punta Cana, Bávaro- Macao Area, respectively.

The purpose of these resolutions is to regulate the urban categorization, classification and implementation of touristic projects and of any other nature with a view to promote a harmonious touristic development.

These resolutions govern matters such as the preservation of natural resources, the revaluation of the urban surroundings, the diversification of the touristic offer and the preservation of the traditional touristic model of these areas, among other aspects.

Each one of these Tourism Sector Land Use and Organization Plan Resolutions for Samaná and the Punta Cana, Bávaro- Macao Area delimits its scope of application, structuring, and that of the Normative Regulation. In its turn, the Normative Regulation sets the maximum soil occupancy levels, the green areas ratio, maximum permitted height and residential density that shall apply to all kinds of touristic real estate, touristic complementary or of any other nature to be developed.

The Tourism Sector Land Use and Organization Plan Resolutions for Samaná and the Punta Cana, Bávaro- Macao Area replace the previous resolutions on this subject and will be implemented by the Planning and Projects Department of the Ministry of Tourism, constituting a mandatory reference prior to proposing touristic and real estate development projects in these areas.
