September 17, 2021 – The City development planners at the Mount Vema Ministry of National Development and Land Maintenance have confirmed that the cruise ship terminal initially planned for the Port of Mount Vema has been moved.
The City of Mount Vema Cruise Ship Terminal was first to be located southwest of the Port of Mount Vema, but as the government makes adjustment to its final designs, a decision was made today to move both the ferry terminals which will carry passengers to the airport and the cruise ship terminal.
The terminal will be now located within the City Bay and will be administered by the Yacht Harbour (Marine) and City Bay Administration and will be referred to as the City Bay Passenger Terminal.
With these changes the City of Mount Vema Bay (City Bay) will be one of the busiest open water parks in Mount Vema. The area will have significant recreational activities such as sailing, especially for those practicing within a controlled environment before venturing out at sea.
The facilities will also include recreational fishing, spearfishing, diving, as well as professional training for marine biologists, rescue divers, or underwater photography and more.
Including underwater search and recovery for people seeking to develop their knowledge and procedural skills for conducting underwater searches and recovering relatively small objects from underwater. As well as underwater videography for people who intend to learn or improve their skills to use video recording equipment designed or modified for underwater use for recording the environment or artistic purposes.
The changes announced today will affect the views of the properties located within the District of Pashant, Pashant Road only from Zone 1 to Zone 7.
