A hotel project in Taitung County’s Shanyuan Bay (杉原灣) failed to pass an environmental review yesterday, as the development is on an archeological site, while environmental groups said there are too many development plans in the county that could harm the environment.

The Dulan Bay Golden Sea Resort project, which plans to develop an 11.3-hectare area at Shanyuan Bay to build a 500-room hotel complex, is one of six planned hotel projects lining the bay, including the controversial Miramar Resort Hotel and Shanyuan Palm Beach Resort projects.


Court orders Taitung to revoke Miramar permit

The Kaohsiung High Administrative Court on Thursday ordered the Taitung County Government to revoke its approval of Miramar Resort Hotel Co’s application to resume construction of a hotel at Shanyuan Bay (杉原灣).

The court said that the county government based its approval on an environmental impact assessment (EIA) review made in 2012, which it said was a different case from the original hotel project and should not have been used as the basis for the county’s judgement.
