  • No to Eastside Bunkering – Caleta Hotel Statement

    24th May 2011

    To Whom It May Concern

    Re : Eastside
    After being briefed by the company that was appointed to carry out an environmental
    impact study on the possibility of east side bunkering and after having considered the
    consequences of this activity, at the Caleta Hotel we can only be against any kind of

    Bunkering is totally against the nature of our industry and certainly not an environmentally
    friendly activity. The consequences of such activity will result in water pollution, noise
    pollution and smells. This is totally detrimental to our business and will spoil forever the
    only unpolluted coast left in Gibraltar.

    While we can understand and appreciate the commercial opportunities that such activities
    might bring to Gibraltar PLC,it is totally detrimental to the environment and our industry. It
    will jeopardise any future tourism development in Gibraltar and affect the residential areas

    The hotel will vigorously oppose such activity.
