BATANGAS CITY – The Sangguniang Panlalawigan ng Batangas Committee on Housing and Land Utilization conducted a Committee Hearing last Sept. 21, 2021 on the PNOC’s  request for the issuance of a Certificate of No Objection to the ESB Port Development Project, which will include the reclamation of 37,270 sqm. along Batangas Bay.

ESB Manager Engr. Carlito B Pena presented the project to the Committee chaired by Board Member Jonas Patrick Gozos. The Provincial Board Certificate of No Objection is the last requirement of the Philippine Reclamation Authority (PRA), as a Certificate of No Objection from Batangas Governor Hermilando Mandanas has already been presented to the PRA.
