Chennai may lose an ecologically sensitive beach to encroachers if authorities do not act immediately. An illegal residential layout, consisting of 100 concrete houses, is being planned behind a prominent temple and barely 50 metres from the water's edge; one such house is already being built. In addition, rubble is being dumped on the beach with a view to laying three roads, in clear violation of Coastal Regulation Zone (CRZ) notifications under the Environment Protection Act of 1986.
