Thats quite a lot of development for a small area. Development for Koca Calis has been speculated for as long as I can remember.
Lots of rain around this winter, our caretaker/gardener has sent a video link today and although very wet there's no flooding on Telemessos, we were a bit worried this might happen with some of the lake been filled in , but the canal dredging must of helped.

Yes dredging and keeping open the canal has made a huge difference this year. However filling in and blocking one of the main canals will not end up making things better.

Not strictly true of course. I remember putting more than my two penneth in for the dolphins, for example. I supported that 100%. I'm sure I could find other examples but I'm not really that fussed what you think.

I'm sure you aren't, but I am fussed by what you think.

In the early 2000s many people bought in Koca Calis, saying (yourself included) it was destined for bigger things eventually and as an area it was "up and coming", therefore a shrewd investment long term.

Well, here it is, the up and coming is arriving - and now you don't like it.

p.s. not liking two dolphins being held in a swimming pool doesn't make you an eco warrior.

You would think that someone would start building again on the site on the prom, that was started about 2-3 yrs ago and then left.

Stoop I never suggested filling In All of the canals so dont go off on one.I stated that the canal in question was not a problem as it was probably the dirtiest I have seen in the area so no great loss,never saw anyone on here arguing about the dirty canals in the area and demanding major cleanup etc.
It seems that the concerns are more for people’s property which I get but let’s not go down the environmental concern route when the real reason is damage to properties.

The canals are there to take the excess water when the weather gets bad. Anything that blocks them is not a very good idea at all and threatens the local property with flooding.

Stoop like I said in my post,your argument is about property damage/value not the environment.
Personally I don’t welcome any more hotels or developments in the Calis area.There are sufficient places and these large concerns do harm the environment,also the overall attraction of the place we have enjoyed over the years.
